Anyone from 10 to 110 is welcome.

As an artist Micheline makes the effort to choose methods and materials that respect the earth. In her collages she used materials that were found, recycled and re-used rather than bought. As well, she used water-based paints, acid free glue, cotton rag or stone paper. Micheline is constantly exploring new ways to 'green' her art.

Lani Burshtein is a third-year printmaking student at OCAD. Bookbinding, papercraft and embroidery are central to her interests. Her interest in sculpture also informs the creation of bookworks that incorporate pop-ups and alternative book structures.
