WAR FLOWERS - Touring Art Exhibition
“I believe people have an ability to find beauty and hope, even amidst the horrors of war. This exhibition examines human nature in wartime through a series of artistic representations, multisensory experiences and portraits of ten Canadians who were involved in the First World War.
Optical crystal sculptures created by Mark Raynes Roberts portray scenes that illustrate different aspects of human nature while scents developed by Alexandra Bachand evoke personal memory.
WAR Flowers is inspired by the pressed flowers picked by George Stephen Cantlie in the gardens, fields and hedges of war-torn Europe and sent to his baby daughter in Montreal. I examine these century-old flowers using floriography, a method of communicating emotion through flowers, to tell the story of human nature in the landscape of war.”
– Viveka Melki, curator
WAR FLOWERS | FLEUR D'ARMES has been made possible by the Government of Canada and by the generosity of private partners.

Several different engraving techniques will be explored, from diamond point, through drill to wheel engraving. The course focuses on the development of practical skills alongside an appreciation of glass engraving itself not only as an artwork, but also as a sculptural object in light that throws colour and shadows, even providing the means for simple printmaking.
