Due to COVID-19, we are unable to offer our Artist-in-Residence program on location along the shores of Lake Rosseau as in previous years. This year we will be offering virtual workshops in various forms (via zoom, live stream, or instructional video) during the week each artist was originally scheduled. These videos will be posted on our AIR page and in the event descriptions
Melanie Siegel is a three time Ontario Arts Council Grant recipient, and educator of over 700 students a year in the York Region District school board, private schools and guilds. She has exhibited her work internationally, and been published in art journals.
Melanie’s artwork in textiles is formed by many elements, such as love of colour, texture, and the attractions of structures for containment, as vessels. The Canadian Landscape is also a primary focus. Colour is combined as preparations for tapestry weaving, the blending of many different strands of threads, wool, silk, rayon, and metallic threads. Free motion embroidery in metallic threads combine to add light and movement to her work. Examples of her personal and student work may be found here.
