Art Talk at the Old Fire Hall – Helen O’Connor – February 3  at 5:30

Yukon visual artist, Helen O'Connor, makes handmade paper to create sculptural works of art, assemblages and installations. Helen's work is process informed, influenced by her Canadian/Irish heritage, relationships and the wilderness surrounding her home. Her talk will introduce an array of international paper artists as well as the development of her own work over 20 years highlighting work developed during her recent travels and residency on the Orkney Islands and the north coast of Scotland, June 2010. Come out to learn about the specialized medium of hand papermaking in an international context.

A hands-on demonstration of oriental hand papermaking will follow slide show and talk.
