An exhibit of work by my friend Kelly Greene at McIntosh Gallery. It's always good to be exposed to different kinds of artwork. Our approaches to art are so very different. I am a sketcher/illustrator who bases art on surroundings, experiences and places and works primarily in two dimensions in watercolour and ink. Kelly is multi-media artist who focuses on environmental concerns, as well as the impact colonization has had on First Peoples. She works in painting, sculpture, installation, and photography. We always have such interesting conversations!

A Mohawk member of the Six Nations of the Grand River in Ohsweken, Ontario, Greene focuses on topics that include environmental concerns as well as the impact that colonization has had on Canada's First People. Although she wasn’t raised within her Indigenous heritage, Greene has spent much of her adult life learning about her Haudenosaunee identity."
