Talking Craft with Cathryn Miller
Award winning paper artist Cathryn Miller discusses their latest solo exhibition, Square Dance. Square Dance is installed at the SCC Gallery in Saskatoon, SK, from January 16 - March 06 2021. Cathryn's exhibition is unified by a common material and the use of the square as a recurring design element; this exhibition explores both the encryption and the transmission of memories and messages. The works are textile-inspired, and paper is transformed through a variety of processes such as cutting, folding, printing, painting, or stitching.
