Prairie Interlace

"Prairie Interlace" is a travelling exhibition that examines the explosion of innovative textile-based art on the Canadian Prairies between 1960-2000.

"Prairie Interlace: Weaving, Modernisms and the Expanded Frame, 1960 - 2000" is a touring exhibition featuring 60 pieces by 48 artists including Associate Professor and Alum Mackenzie Kelly-Frere, BFA '98, Textiles, former Professor Emeritus Dr. Jennifer E Salahub, former Professor Emeritus Mireille Perron plus more. Although largely overlooked in histories of prairie art and craft, this was a period of intense energy and creativity.

This exhibition is a collaboration between Nickle Galleries and the MacKenzie Art Gallery of Regina and is curated by Michele Hardy, PhD (Nickle Galleries, University of Calgary), Timothy Long (Head Curator, MacKenzie Art Gallery) and Julia Krueger, PhD (Independent Curator and Scholar).
