Maple Wish exhibition @ the Winnipeg Art Gallery

I'm excited and honored to represent the Yukon at the Maple Wish exhibition at the Winnipeg Art Gallery this fall as a part of Canada’s 150th celebrations. The exhibition brings together 13 wooden pieces from 13 different artists [one from each province and territory] with different stories, artistic style, and backgrounds, to form a 9 foot long mosaic which was unveiled on October 1st at the WAG. At this community oriented project I reflected on what makes the Yukon arts community so unique, inspiring, and beautiful and why I love it so much. The exhibit is up for 6 months.

Exploring colors and textures in nature
Nature has many different patterns, shapes, colors and much more in it. It's not random. It's beautiful, it's math, it's physics and it's art. At this workshop we'll create art inspired by nature's different patterns, colors and textures.

Have you ever painted nature with nature? At this workshop, on top of being inspired by nature, we'll paint on natural materials and learn to combine nature in our art as a part of it. We can recycle. We can use antlers, wood, and more. Can you guess which other elements will we be using? ;)

Colorful projects in the community

Maya is a visual artist, art teacher and coordinator in different communities across the Yukon. 

She took part at the collaborative project "Elles se Racontent", to show how art can inspire and support our community through colors. 

"Some people can hear music. I can see it. This piece was painted live on the Yukon Arts Center during the show "Elles Se Racontent" by the Francophone community in Yukon. The show brought together different local female artists, each presenting her own story through a variety of arts forms. This painting represents each and every one of these remarkable woman and their stories. As they were performing, I was painting on the Yukon Art Center's stage their songs, dances and visualizing music into acrylic. Each woman got an element in the painting. The floating music notes for light music, the bird for freedom, the reflections in the water for reflecting on herself, etc. Each element was painted at the same time as its owner performed, and the total is a collective of many remarkable woman's work and stories. I'm proud to present the final product to you. The painting was at at Yukon Art Center, "Lighthearted" exhibition, Woman's day exhibition at Antoinette's, and is currently exhibited at AFY, Whitehorse". 

Maya also coordinated the Wish 150 Yukon Mosaic in Whitehorse (Arts Underground and The Yukon Art Center) and Kluane National Park and Reserve (visitor center) as well as facilitated a variety of art workshops for different events to aspire for reconciliation and collaboration through art. 

Maya is leading art activities and community mosaics in schools around Yukon, the Yukon Art Center, and art varied workshops, to inspire for youth engagement in the community. 

In the past, Maya donated a few paintings. Among them, are paintings for the Yukon Artist Relief Fund, and the painting "Blossoming"  given to the Whitehorse General Hospital on January 2016. Special thanks to Maureen and Kathy who welcomed the painting with so much joy. She has also donated a painting to the CF Yukon which was sold at an auction on October 16th 2015 to help support the Cystic Fibrosis research, organized through the Klondike roots and blues festival.

Maya continues to inspire for positive impact in our community through art and colors, supporting emerging artists, teaching art classes and exhibiting art shows in the Yukon and more.
