Meg's recent work draws on the Mennonite tradition of fraktur art, a highly imaginative, densely detailed, and symbolic illuminated folk art practiced historically in the Waterloo Region. Her work integrates appropriated symbols, pattern, and motifs found within Mennonite visual culture with newly imagined imagery that engages with contemporary themes and interests (e.g. bioregional and local culture, feminist and queer theory).
The exhibition opening is May 9, 2019 at 7:30 pm and you are asked to register here.
The University of Waterloo acknowledges that much of our work takes place on the traditional territory of the Neutral, Anishinaabeg and Haudenosaunee peoples. Our main campus is situated on the Haldimand Tract, the land granted to the Six Nations that includes six miles on each side of the Grand River. Our active work toward reconciliation takes place across our campuses through research, learning, teaching, and community building, and is centralized within our Office of Indigenous Relations.
