Organized by Kate Metten Ceramics
Join us for an artist talk and exhibition tour with photographer Ken Jeannotte, Saturday April 22 at 2pm. Jeannotte has been (at least once) a/an: farmer, oil patch worker, cowboy, art school graduate, painter, drawing instructor, world explorer, short order cook, roofer, bush pile it, tree planter, back to the land hippie, goldsmith, carpenter, photographer, rockabilly drummer in an off skid row country band, and artist at large. He is an amazing storyteller.
Ken Jeannotte was born in Vancouver in 1948 and grew up on a farm north of Ft. St. John, B.C. He studied painting and printmaking at the Kootenay School of Art, Nelson B.C. (1966, grad.1969) and painting and photography at Emily Carr Institution of Art and Design, Vancouver B.C. (1984–86 and 1998, grad. 2000). When not producing photo-based images in Vancouver, is building a painting studio and darkroom on the banks of the Shuswap River east of Lumby B.C.
Curator Kate Metten is an interdisciplinary artist working at the intersection of painting and Ceramics.
