Join artist Tina Poplawski in this talk about her exhibition. An Artist Talk is just that, an opportunity to hear an artist talk about their work. This Artist Talk will be a walk-about, a special guided tour by Tina of her exhibition. Attending an Artist Talk is a fantastic way to learn about the context of an exhibition and gain a deeper level of understanding of the artwork.
When the Green Dark Forest was too Silent to be Real features large scale works inspired by the crocheted doilies created by Poplawski’s  grandmother during the war, Eastern European folk heritage, botanical matter and animals native to Central Ontario and her environment.
