Silkscreen Power with Mary Tremonte: This Tuesday, 4pm at Civic Space!

Windsor Youth Arts Week - Poster (2013)

Silkscreen Power: A Printmaking Workshop Hosted by Justseeds Artist Cooperative Member Mary Tremonte

Tuesday, May 7th at 4pm – Civic Space (411 Pelissier Street, Windsor, Ontario)

We are proud to be involved in Windsor Youth Arts Week 2013, this city’s contribution to National Youth Arts Week, a weeklong celebration of creativity in Canada. Windsor Youth Arts Week will provide an opportunity for youth ages 13 to 30 to express and exchange ideas, get excited about creative activity, and celebrate their contributions to their communities and to Canadian culture.

On Tuesday, May 7th, join Mary Tremonte, Justseeds Artist Cooperative member and current Broken City Lab artist in residence, as she reveals the magic of silkscreening, using posters, bandanas, pennants, and t-shirts as canvasses. Also, feel free to bring your own materials for printing (t-shirts, etc.)!

Broken City Lab presents: Justseeds Artist Cooperative in Residence for Mayworks 2013

April 30th – May 17th, 2013 at CIVIC SPACE (411 Pelissier Street, Windsor, Ontario) and Drouillard Park (1247 Drouillard Road, Windsor, Ontario)

Justseeds Artists’ Cooperative is a decentralized network of 24 artists committed to making print and design work that reflects a radical social, environmental, and political stance. With members working from the U.S., Canada, and Mexico, Justseeds operates both as a unified collaboration of similarly minded printmakers and as a loose collection of creative individuals with unique viewpoints and working methods. They believe in the transformative power of personal expression in concert with collective action. To this end, they produce collective portfolios, contribute graphics to grassroots struggles for justice, work collaboratively both in- and outside the co-op, build large sculptural installations in galleries, and wheatpaste on the streets – all while offering each other daily support as allies and friends.

Members of Justseeds will be coming to Civic Space to host a series of labour-inspired events and an exhibition titled Uprisings: Images of Labour.
