Visual arts student presenting solo exhibition

There is still time to enjoy Krystal Bigsky’s solo exhibition titled Sustain the Roots at the Dry Goods Gallery. Bigsky was selected in the fall for the RBC Emerging Artist in Residence (EAIR) program and along with her exhibition is serving a residency at Art Windsor Essex (AWE).

Bigsky is a third-year visual arts student from Touchwood Agency, Treaty 4 Territory in Southern Saskatchewan. Over the last few years, she has created art through beadwork and textile work. Bigsky is a mother and professional powwow dancer who travels across Canada and the United States.

Recently, she has been combining elements of sculpture, textile, time base, photography, and collage with her beadwork. Bigsky has a deep fascination with landscapes and natural elements and incorporates them into her art. She also created original artwork for the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences’s Indigenous Studies logo.

Her Sustain the Roots exhibition is on display until Feb. 19 at the gallery, located at 1012 Drouillard Rd.
