This exhibition explores the process and creativity of Meghann O'Brien's remarkable weavings in cedar and wool.
Meghann takes materials from the natural world and transforms them into pieces of high-level human expression. Working with traditional materials such as mountain goat wool and cedar bark has given her a deep connection to the supernatural world, a connection to her ancestors. She describes working with cedar bark as, “traveling back in time” or “touching the cosmos”. Her creations have a profound impact on Contemporary Northwest Coast Art.
