Omineca Arts Centre presents Twyla Exner’s Cling exhibition open until May 31.
Twyla Exner is a Canadian contemporary artist who resides in Prince George. She creates art works in various mediums, including drawing, sculpture, ceramics, and installation. Exner’s pieces explore themes of nature, combined with technology and electronics, and have been exhibited across Canada.
Her month long exhibition includes in person open studio hours with Twyla Sundays 10-3, and a free wire sculpture workshop May 31 from 7-9 p.m. Follow on Facebook for updates! To register email: email@example.com
Twya’s Cling Exhibition is inspired by the wonders of nature and the idea of electronic technologies gone awry. She uses the materials and imagery of discarded electronic technologies to create whimsical and worrisome sculptures and drawings that propose hybrids of technological structures and living organisms.
Twyla holds a BFA in sculpture from the University of Regina (Regina, SK) and a MFA in Studio Arts from Concordia University (Montreal, QC). Twyla is passionate about sharing in the creative process and has exhibited artworks and facilitated lectures, workshops, lesson plans and interactive art making experiences for schools, community centers, post-secondary institutions, museums, galleries and festivals across Canada. Follow her on Instagram and Facebook to see more of her works!
