Don’t miss your chance to see Ingrid Mayrhofer during an 8-week artist residency at the Acton Farmer’s Market every Thursday until October 6. During this residency Mayrhofer will work with a “Tree of Life” motif, creating clay tiles that will be mounted to form a mural. Visitors can contribute sketches or clay pieces or choose to take a self-curing clay piece home. The final mural will be presented during Culture Days this fall and up
Ingrid Mayrhofer (BFA, MA, York University) is a visual artist, curator, educator, and community arts practitioner. Ingrid recently opened her own pottery studio in downtown Hamilton. Her work will be part of the exhibition “Voices” at the Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, Waterloo, Ontario, opening on September 24. Residents in Halton Hills may recognize her printmaking works from the After Nature public art banners that were displayed in multiple locations in Town in 2020 and 2021.
The animals Ingrid has selected represent species that are endangered or threatened in Ontario. This connects the project to the content of the banners, which Ingrid created for the Town of Halton Hills in 2019/20.
