Join us for an informative talk with artists Nathalie Bertin and Dianne Brown-Green. The pair will speak about Nathalie’s practice and the concepts embedded within her exhibition Loup Garou & Moccasins: A Story in Multi-Mediums. This installation of intricate beadwork, photography and painting combines personal stories and life lessons with issues of identity politics surrounding her Franco-Metis ancestry. The work is on view from Friday September 2 to Saturday October 29, 2022, at Latcham Art Centre.
