Jaad Kuujus: Meghann O'Brien

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.
