AiR Artist Talks: James Macdonald + Sara Mericle

May 25, 2023 | James Macdonald – 7pm | Sara Mericle – 8pm

Join us on May 25th for two artist talks from Casa’s current Artists in Residence (AiR)

 

Who is in Residence?

This spring, Casa will be hosting painter James MacDonald, as part of the Artist in Residence (AiR) program from May 1 – May 31. James MacDonald is an artist from Sherwood Park, Alberta. His work explores local environments through the genre of landscape painting. James begins his large-scale oil paintings onsite, pinning the canvas sheet into the earth, drawing and painting while referencing the landscape around him. He then takes the roll of canvas back to the studio where he finishes it over time. Each painting explores the local landscape through form, colour, and mark-making.

This spring, Casa will be hosting ceramicist Sara Mericle, as part of the Artist in Residence (AiR) program from May 22 – June 15. Sara Mericle is a Canadian ceramic artist currently working and studying in Montreal. Her background in design and architecture informs her use of space, and attention to material qualities. Her work explores issues relating to climate anxiety, the place of the body in the environment, as well as the creative reuse of the waste materials that are produced in the ceramic process.
