If there is a downside to working with amazing, talented and busy ladies, it is that they get overbooked. For that reason, we lost one of our 2011 juror, Allyson Mitchell to an install of her new work (which you will probably want to see).
The upside to losing Allyson is getting to book last-minute addition, Hazel Meyer. Read below to find out more about her illustrious career and the exciting happenings she undertakes:
Hazel Meyer is a visual artist and aspiring athlete. She spent ten years in Montréal, earning a BFA from Concordia University, designing fabric for the textile industry, founding the Hound’s tooth, forsooth! fabricLAB, and coaching the jump rope team Smooche de la Rooche. Presently she is living in Toronto, having recently completed an MFA through the Interdisciplinary Master’s in Art, Media & Design program at OCAD University, with her thesis project Hyper-Hyper. Working primarily in installation, intervention and performance, with textiles and drawing, her projects have been shown through various Artist-Run Centers and festivals across North America and Europe.
You will also be able to meet her at the show as she will be there with her latest project, Knitdown SVP!
