Join us for a free, interactive tour of Patternmaker led by artists Carey Jernigan and Julia Campbell-Such.
In Patternmaker, artists Carey Jernigan and Julia Campbell-Such interrogate the social, cultural and psychological consequences of the changing pace of work. In this interactive tour, the artists will facilitate group discussion about themes and individual responses to the work in the exhibition, tour visitors through each of the works, and provide insights into their process and research.
About the artists:
Carey Jernigan is an interdisciplinary artist, sculptor, and furniture maker based in Toronto, Canada. Her work often features wood, light, and memory: exploring obsolete industrial processes and the people and places they shape. She seeks to explore the stories told through the material objects that industry, politics, and social systems leave behind. Carey often works collaboratively and has participated in several public art festivals including Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, Artspin, Long Winter, the AGO’s First Thursdays, Art Now at the TOAE, Supercrawl, Hamilton Winterfest, and Nocturne: Art at Night. Her work has been shown at the Harbourfront Centre, Parkdale Film & Video Showcase, the Khyber Centre for the Arts, the Anna Leonowens Gallery, Eyelevel Gallery and the Nova Scotia Public Archives. In 2014 Carey spent a month in Porto, Portugal as a resident at De Liceiras 18. In 2015 she was the recipient of the RBC Emerging Artists Studio Setup Award through Craft Ontario.
Julia Campbell-Such is a Toronto-based furniture maker with a graduate degree in History and Philosophy of Religions (2010). She has studied restoration and traditional cabinetmaking techniques, and has a particular interest in material culture and the history of work. In 2014 she began collaborating with artist Carey Jernigan and they have since exhibited their work together at Harbourfront Centre and at Hamilton Winterfest. Julia is currently preparing for a career in art conservation, with a focus on the preservation of antique furniture and wooden objects.
