Nibbles N' Knowledge: Women and Water - A Global Exhibit Presentation

June 15, 2023

5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
Location: Ashland, WI

Join local award-winning fiber artist Mary Burns as she highlights her latest project, "Women and Water - A Global Exhibit." The exhibit celebrates and honors water by portraying women who work with it, protect it and advocate for it. Featured are women who are scientists, water-walkers, teachers, farmers, activists and healers, people who hold deep connections with water.

Twenty-eight (28) hand-woven portraits compose the exhibit. Mary will discuss some of the work these women do and tell their stories in her presentation, as well as giving a brief overview about her weaving process.

The exhibit is currently on display at the Northern Great Lakes Visitor Center in Ashland, WI (June 12 - October 16, 2023). As an additional program for NLDC, Mary will lead a tour of the exhibit at the visitor center on June 16th.
