In the ODD Gallery: Caitlin Erskine-Smith


October 27 – December 2, 2011

Opening Thursday October 27  |  Artist Talk at 7:00 pm  |  Reception at 8:00pm

Please join us for the opening of Caitlin Erskine-Smith’s Missives in the ODD Gallery. Erskine-Smith’s work examines the process of communication through woven pieces that play with language, filters, understanding, expression, and cloth.  Many pieces incorporate texts painted directly on the warp and then woven to create blurred messages.

Born in Toronto, Caitlin Erskine-Smith has studied art and design in Europe, South America and at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design. Focusing in textiles, her work incorporates traditional techniques to consider modern conflicts of identity, language, and change.  She has exhibited across Canada and internationally, including Unity and Diversity at the Cheongju International Craft Biennale in Korea, Nuit Blanche and Luminato in Toronto, and Nocture in Halifax.
