Amber Smith-Quail’s solo exhibition, Nawemaa / to be related, is the result of reflection upon the truth in connections. A member of Alderville First Nation, Amber is an Indigenous artist and educator based in Tkaronto and South Algonquin. She has contemplated how imbalance – physically, mentally, spiritually and emotionally – does not act in isolation. The by-products of imbalance are felt throughout our relational chain. Somewhere along the way, the well-being of our relatives – flora, fauna, land, water, air and each other – has been forgotten. Smith-Quail’s beadwork, mixed-media pieces, and paintings address the forced disconnection of First People from the land.

This exhibition is the conclusion of Amber Smith-Quail’s one year term as Artist in Residence at the Women’s Art Association of Canada.

Amber Smith-Quail: Nawemaa / To be related is supported by the Ontario Arts Council and Steamwhistle.
