Join artist Jennie Suddick on Saturday, June 16 at 2:00 pm for an artist talk and tree model making workshop in tandem with her exhibition The Tree House Project.

The Tree House Project envisions the tree house as both a personal space and a realm of the imagination, a lens through which to consider changing landscape, autonomy, and nostalgia.

During June of 2017, Suddick invited the Victoria community to share unrealized childhood plans for tree houses and other forts in a workshop held at Open Space. From the collaborative sketches assembled, she has created scale paper architectural models and detailed drawings that bring new life to these thwarted childhood ambitions. Many of the translated images and drawings are hybrids of the concepts shared by multiple participants. For Suddick, these hybrids “link common experiences or ideas in a tangible form.”

The Tree House Project is ongoing, expanding as visitors are encouraged to engage with it and contribute their own varied perspectives, stories, and ideas in the form of drawings shared with the exhibition.

Visit with the artist while she is in residency at Open Space from June 13-22 from 3-5 pm. The opening reception will be held at 7:00pm on Thursday June 21, in concert with MediaNet’s opening for Origins by Nicholas Vandergugten.

The Tree House Project will run June 13 – July 28, 12-5pm Tuesday-Saturday at Open Space.
