Vernissage for ‘of a feather: Thaddeus Holownia and Karen Stentaford’

January 19

Join us for a vernissage to celebrate the exhibition of a feather in memory of Gay Hansen, featuring works by Thaddeus Holownia and Karen Stentaford.

About the Exhibition
This exhibition considers how close relationships with the natural world strengthen our bonds with each other. It is organized in memory of Gay Hansen (1954-2021), a gifted teacher, mentor, and ornithologist who taught at Mount Allison for thirty-nine years. of a feather takes its title from a portfolio of photographs Thaddeus Holownia created after the death of Hansen, his life partner. These tender portraits of bird study skinsā€”part of a collection she assembledā€”join a series of projects highlighting the coupleā€™s creative partnership. They are presented alongside Karen Stentafordā€™s haunting landscape photographs, which she creates in patient collaboration with the environment, an approach that reflects Hansenā€™s influence on her work.
