Art Now! Speakers' Series Presents: Karin Jones
Karin Jones is a Vancouver-based artist with a background in jewellery and metalsmithing. While in the Master of Fine Arts program at NSCAD University in Halifax in 2012/2013, she began exploring hair as a craft medium, a marker of race and culture, and an expression of feminine identity. Halfway through her MFA, she was hired as an instructor at Vancouver Community College's Jewellery Art and Design program, where she now teaches part-time, and will return to Halifax to complete her degree in 2017. Her work has been exhibited internationally, most recently at the Royal Ontario Museum, and the National Ornamental Metal Museum in Memphis, Tennessee. Presented in collaboration with the McIntosh Gallery. See Karin's Exhibition on view, January 21st to March 12th, 2016.
