Amanda McCavour: Floating Garden

March 6, 2019 - May 26, 2019

Amanda McCavour: Floating Garden
On View March 6 – May 26, 2019
Reception: April 13, 6pm – 8pm
Vulcan Gallery

Toronto Based Artist Amanda McCavour creates experiential, immersive environments that represent places in her memory. Her three dimensional, embroidered art installations are made up of delicate fabric designs that float within the space. Motifs included in her works are flowers, birds, plants and replications of living room furniture. Exploring a connection to home and the body, McCavour is interested in the vulnerability of the thread in comparison with the connection between temporary spaces in memory.

About the Artist
McCavour holds a BFA from York University where she studied drawing and installation and has recently completed her MFA in Fibers and Material Studies at Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia, PA. McCavour shows her work in galleries nationally and internationally with recent solo exhibitions in Gatineau (QB), Williamsport (PA) and Vancouver (BC). She has received awards and scholarships from the Ontario Crafts Council, The Handweavers and Spinners Guild of America, The Ontario Crafts Council, The Ontario Society of Artists, The Surface Design Association and The Embroiderers Guild of America for her work.
