We are excited to have new art up by local artists Corinne Blouin-Hudon, Kristina Corre, and Nneka Nnagbo! Come check it out on Sunday and meet the artists. You can even join Kristina in some collaging over a pint!
Corinne Blouin a.k.a Co, is a multimedia artist with a background in graphic design. As a child, she would spend her days outside exploring the forest behind her house. Today, she uses her art as a way to reconnect with those simple memories. Co hopes to break the barrier separating man from nature to create pieces that inspire people to find compassion and appreciation for the natural world.
A lifelong love of drawing and imagining new worlds led Kristina Corre to study architecture at Carleton University’s Azrieli School of Architecture and Urbanism, where she graduated with her Master of Architecture in 2012. Architecture school taught her the importance of narratives in image making and meticulousness in craft. These two incredibly important lessons, along with a bit of whimsy, Bunz-traded books and magazines, and a fascination with hands and shadows, are currently driving Kristina’s latest explorations with handcut collage. Her work can also be found at Studio Sixty-Six, and on instagram @kristinasees.
Nneka Nnagbo seeks to create art that makes people feel something, anything. She wants to capture people in their most disarming and charming conditions. Her images are a time capsule of juvenescence and a reverence of the past. But they especially highlight black youth and the spirit of adolescence because it is Nneka’s belief that the smell of restless adolescence stays with you forever.
