See what this Indie Artist is up to:

Sculptor and Installation Artist, Rod Bergeron,  to show Robot Home Movies at Colborne Art Gallery



“I often work on multiple projects simultaneously,” Bergeron says. “Doing this gives all of my projects some linkage between each other. That is the situation with Robot Home Movies. I was facing the end of a large body of work, called the War Machine Projects, (which) had forced me into an area of study referred to as post-humanism. I studied the idea of what it really meant to be human.”

Don't miss Rod's work at Make It Indie 2015

What Are Make It Indie Artists Up To Now?


About

Nancy Gagné has been creating natural soaps for over 15 years using the cold process method. Scent, colour and texture are created using essential oils, beeswax, honey, goats milk, and herbs and plants from her gardens.

About

Evelyn Haskell grew up in a home full of knitting needles, buttons, fabrics, and yarns, and so, from a very early age has been knitting, sewing, embroidering and playing with fabric. That interest combined with a commitment to recycling led to a craft business based on the reusing of vintage fabrics and yarns. She especially likes working with old wool sweaters which, after the felting process, are turned into a variety of unique useful and decorative items.
Her hats are especially in demand, but mittens, slippers, bags, and catnip mice are also very popular. This year’s new product is a series of felted pillows— very comfy and cozy.

Payments Accepted: Cash, Cheques


About

Phil & Sandra Boyko: In their variety of pieces, whether wooden bowls, platters, and other woodturned items, they create products which are finely finished and which would add considerable beauty to any room. All wood obtained from salvaged local trees. Also crafted ukeleles.

About

Christine Benson: Stretching the boundaries of relief printmaking, my linocuts are inspired by nature and combine Japanese papers, hand-stitching, collage and paint which allows me to experiment with colour and pattern in a playful way.
Christine is continually inspired by the distinct colours, textures and patterns found in nature. She uses the process of relief printmaking as a graphic starting point for explorations involving Japanese and Thai papers, collage and delicate stitching. Christine is the co- founder of Journey Through the Arts, a multifaceted arts facility. She is showing at her summer studio at the Old Mill in Port Hope (formerly the Ontario College of Art Summer School in the 1920s and 30s).

About

Tannice Goddard has been playing with metals. So far, a 3-year study of silver-smithing and jewellery was explored. “I feel like I have set myself free in the passion of creation. I don’t need to go out looking for inspiration. It is opening out of my heart along with this trusting sensation of following something that is flowing and moving.” With a book design background, working with space and form in 3D feels like a natural evolution.
Using sterling silver, copper sheet metal (which is sawn, hammered and shaped) and fine silver in clay form (which is fired), this is the first time she presents her art in the Northumberland Studio Tour. Her pieces of work are eclectic, varied and whimsical, exploring the properties of metal together with the mix of textures. Jewellery pieces may be accompanied by stones, leather, pearls, and found objects.
Visit her website to view more of her work with information on upcoming shows.
