Catherine Widgery & Yolanda Paulsen

Mentoring Artists for Women’s Art and the Winnipeg Art Gallery have partnered to present the first women and sculpture symposium in Canada at the Winnipeg Art Gallery.

MAWA and WAG members $125

Conference Schedule
Thursday, January 20   • Keynote speaker Catherine Widgery, 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.

Friday, January 21        • Panelists Shary Boyle, Aganetha Dyck, Andrew Kear, Jennifer Stillwell, Mary Reid, Elizabeth Roy, Eva Stubbs, Tricia Wasney and Darlene Coward Wight

Saturday, January 22   • Keynote speaker Yolanda Paulsen; panelists Faye Heavyshield, Mary Anne Barkhouse, Nadia Myre, Candice Hopkins, Rebecca Belmore and Lee-Ann Martin

The medium of sculpture, particularly public art, continues to be male dominated.  This national symposium will be an exciting opportunity to bring together female sculptural practitioners from across Canada to network, to discuss sculptural issues, and to share professional experiences and strategies. 
What does it take to be a sculptor in today’s art world? 
How are women flourishing in the field of sculptural media? 

This symposium will provide an opportunity for all artists to broaden their understanding of three-dimensional practices, and engage in discussions with senior artists from across Canada, as well as Yolanda Paulsen from Mexico City. 

Do not miss this opportunity to participate in the first Canadian conference to explore issues pertaining to women and 3-D work.
