Lindsay’s work is heavily influenced by traditional quilts, both in design and process. Her work is based on traditional patterns that she adapts by scale, asymmetry, solid colours, and the use of negative space to create contemporary pieces.
The Art Gallery of Burlington, in collaboration with Craft Ontario, is pleased to announce the inaugural Canadian Craft Biennial, August 19 to October 29, 2017. As part of Biennial pro-gramming, Nothing is Newer than Tradition will present the work of emerging Ontario makers that reflect a dedicated engagement with specialized skills and materials. The exhibition will explore how craft materials, tools and processes are creatively reiterated through the hands of a new generation of makers.
As a celebratory year, 2017 is the 150th anniversary of both Canada and Ontario, and
Nothing is Newer than Tradition will present work that opens up an experience of craft history, where the making of objects critically intersects with both our past and present cultural, social and political ways of being in the world. Craft traditions of making are deeply rooted in identities and cultures that extend beyond current national boundaries and con-ventions, and remain critical in presenting work that enriches and reflects our lives today.

All selected applicants for the exhibition will receive a $100 exhibitor honorarium.
