Bringing the Visual Arts to Norfolk County

Current Exhibition

A MATTER OF MATERIAL
JENNIFER BUDD and KIT JULIAN
December 5 – January 10, 2019
Reception: Sunday, December 9, 2018, 2 – 4 p.m.

Material is the backbone of any artists’ practice. While it dictates the structure of the work it also compels the artist into submitting to its texture for their artistic vision. The rest is freedom.

Jennifer Budd uses felt and embroidery thread to develop landscapes. This body of work is inspired by the fields of her family’s farm in Perthshire, Scotland.

“During my visits, I walked the fields reflecting on the tapestry of life’s moments stitched together over time.” Jennifer works from her studio in Paris ON.

Kit Julian’s process is accomplished with a palette of collected fabric that are arranged into invented costumes animated against fabric backgrounds and encased in shadow boxes.

“Since an early time in my life I knew that textile was my muse and medium of choice. I went on to create costumes for theatre and designed clothing. I have been using variations of this iconic shape and form ever since.” Kit Julian works from her studio in Simcoe ON.

Thank you to Venture Norfolk for recognizing The Old Town Hall’s Art Gallery program through a matching fund grant. We have installed a state of the art hanging system that will serve artists showing their work in the Old Town Hall Gallery for years to come.
