Location: Saskatchewan Craft Council Gallery, 813 Broadway Avenue, Saskatoon, SK

Saskatchewan Craft Council is pleased to present The Flower People, a solo exhibition by Melanie Monique Rose.

Melanie Monique Rose is a fibre and visual artist from Regina, Saskatchewan, Treaty 4 Territory. She attended the Kootenay School of the Arts in Nelson, BC and majored in Fibre Arts. Since then, Rose has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions nationally. The Flower People is an ongoing theme for Rose, derived from the name "The Flower Beadwork People," a name given to the Métis who are well known for their floral beadwork. Rose uses felting techniques on collected blankets to create a canvas; exploring her Métis identity alongside her Ukrainian heritage. Personal, cultural, and universal symbolism are woven into the fabric of Rose’s work with an emphasis on movement, colour, and narrative. Rose’s most recent works explore personal acts of Indigenous survivance and solidarity, which have made her look critically at how she tells her story as an active Indigenous presence and contemporary artist in the world today.

Melanie Monique Rose will speak at a special Reception and Artist Talk co-sponsored by Sâkêwêwak Artist Collective on Saturday, January 25th. The Artist Talk will run from 2 to 3 pm, and the Reception from 3 to 5 pm at the Saskatchewan Craft Council. Everyone is welcome!
