Hear from SAR’s Eric and Barbara Dobkin Native Artist fellow, Meghann O’Brien, about her current work and experiences at SAR.
O’Brien, a Haida/Kwakwaka’wakw weaver, is interested in reconciling the perceived divide between male dominated totem and mask carving and that of weaving and textiles often deemed ‘women’s work’.“The traditions in haute couture still honor textiles and the handmade as an art worth celebrating,” she writes. As such, O’Brien has been creating an intricately woven necklace in the Chilkat tradition, depicting the Haida Dogfish Mother.
The evening will conclude with a visit to the Dubin Studio to see O’Brien’s work. RSVP by Monday, May13 by registering here.
