Artists by Artists: Ruth Cuthand and Megan Morman


Art Party
September 28, 2012 to January 6, 2013
Opening Reception: Friday, September 28, 2012

Art Party’s candy-coloured tableaux narrate real and imagined relationships among queer Canadian visual artists. Obsessively patterned with the fusible plastic beads of her crafty childhood, Morman’s portraits examine friendship, insinuation, and the role of storytelling in establishing community.

Morman is based out of Saskatoon and Lethbridge. Her portraits, word games, and writing-based performances have appeared in festivals and publications across Canada. Her mentor, Ruth Cuthand, is a visual artist and educator in Saskatoon. Cuthand’s retrospective Back Talk, curated by Jen Budney, is touring nationally.
