Wednesday Webinar

Three Different Paths with Katherine Boyer, Dawn Saunders Dahl, and Carol Wylie

Date: Wednesday, June 15, 2022, 6:30 – 8:00pm

In 90 minutes, three prairie visual artists will discuss the what and the why of their careers, the choices they have made and the paths that they are on. Hosted and moderated by Chris W. Carson (CARFAC Alberta’s executive director) and Wendy Nelson (CARFAC Saskatchewan’s executive director), Three Different Paths allows three visual artists to share their stories with you and give you time to ask questions and share your observation.

Katherine Boyer (Métis/Settler) is a multidisciplinary artist whose work is focused on methods bound to textile arts and the handmade — primarily woodworking and beadwork. Boyer’s art and research encompasses personal family narratives, entwined with Métis history, material culture, and architectural spaces (human made and natural). She currently lives in Winnipeg, Manitoba and holds a position as an Assistant Professor at the University of Manitoba, School of Art. Boyer has just been longlisted for the 2022 Sobey Art Award.

Residing in Canmore, Dawn Saunders Dahl — a dirt collector and a painter who works with a variety of materials —  has started to document art experiences through photography and film. Dahl has been actively working with Indigenous arts communities in Alberta through public art opportunities, art exhibitions, projects, and events (as an artist, connector, and generator). Dahl currently works at the Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Galerie Cite at La Cite Francophone in Edmonton, and is the Curator of Indigenous Public Art for the Ottawa Public Library and National Library and Archives Joint Facility (opening in 2024). Dahl is of Métis (Red River Ojibway) and European (English, Scottish, Irish, Norwegian, Swedish, French) ancestry.

Carol Wylie is a Saskatoon painter whose work focuses on portraiture and figuration. Themes of identity, consciousness, and human interconnectedness run through her work. She holds an MFA from the Vermont College of Fine Arts and BFA and BA (Psychology) from the University of Saskatchewan. Wylie resides in Saskatoon, SK and works in art education at Remai Modern in addition to teaching drawing and painting privately. She was a finalist in the Kingston Portrait Prize 2015 and the Salt Spring National Art Prize 2021 and is a member of the Studio on 20th art collective.
