Event type: All Ages
Join Sayward Johnson on In the Studio as she talks about her work and her artistic process!
Sayward Johnson is a copper and textile artist whose work explores her fascination with fabrics and sculptures that adhere to the laws of metalsmithing as well as those of textiles and furthermore, present traditional textile patterns in unexpected contexts. She finds beauty and meaning in natural processes that cannot be controlled, such as decay and the transformation of surfaces through erosion and new growth. In her studio practice, she focuses on weaving, knitting and embroidery.
Originally from Danvers, Massachusetts, Sayward is a graduate of the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. Currently she lives in Chelsea, QC with her husband and young daughter. She is an active member of the Enriched Bread Artists and 44.4 Mothers/Artists collectives in Ottawa. Sayward has exhibited across Canada and sold her work to private collectors in the US, Canada and Europe. She has received grants from the Ontario Arts Council, the City of Ottawa, Craft Ontario, OAE and the Canada Council for the Arts.

IMPORTANT PLEASE READ:
The Zoom link for this presentation will be emailed to you the day before the talk (or after you purchase your ticket, if you purchase on the day of the event). If you don't receive it, you can contact the organizer at email@example.com.
Tickets will be on sale until 4 pm the day of the event. After that time you will no longer be able to purchase tickets.
Please note that the time of the talk is 7:00 pm EASTERN (EST).
* Will this talk be recorded for viewing later?
Unfortunately, no. Due to the logistics involved, we decided some time ago to keep these events live. Hopefully if you can't make it to this talk, you'll be able to make it to a future talk.
* It's the day of the talk and I'm having trouble finding or using the link for the talk. How can I find help?
It is very advisable to LOG INTO THE EVENT A FEW MINUTES EARLY to be sure that you have no trouble with the link, and if you are having trouble the organizer can help you out. You can email or message the event organizer up until one hour before the talk on the day of the talk for help. ONCE THE EVENT STARTS, however, messages and emails are not able to be monitored.
* I'm finding it distracting during the talk seeing all of the other participants on my screen. What can I do?
During the event the organizer will put the screen setting on "spotlight view" so that the presenter is the focus on your screen. Depending on your device, you may still see audience members on your screen and changing your setting from "gallery view" to "speaker view" should help with that.
* What Time Zone is the time of the talk in?
The time indicated on all 'In the Studio' talks is the EASTERN (EST) time zone. If you live in a different time zone, be sure to check what time you should tune in to ensure you don't miss the talk.
*I can no longer make it to the talk. Or, I missed the talk. Can I get a refund?
Unfortunately no- the price of the ticket is so low that it is not cost-effective to refund those amounts. If you are unable to make it to the talk and you already have a ticket, or you forget to attend, please do contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I always offer a ticket to the next talk to make up for it. All of the artist speakers receive a portion of the ticket proceeds so we very much appreciate your contribution to supporting artists!
Cutoff is Wednesday, April 14, 2021 4:59 pm EST unless it sells out earlier.
