Kathleen Atkinson-Hindle Exhibits ‘Without a Word’
Metalsmith Creates Magic at Artists on Elgin


 

SUDBURY, ON – July 11, 2017 – Kathleen Atkinson-Hindle, metalsmith, brings her show ‘Without a Word’ to Artists on Elgin August 1-31st. Since a young age, Kathleen’s fascination with metal, and the manipulation of the seemingly unmoving material has led her to a long love affair with the medium. ‘Without a Word’ will have an opening reception August 3rd 5pm-8pm at Artists on Elgin, 168 Elgin street.

When Kathleen was 6 or 7 years old, she remembers picking up a piece of her mother’s jewelry, trying to change its shape. While observing that someone had shaped the piece with their hands, had created the smooth lines, she discovered that the hard material could be molded, and so the magic of her work began. Kathleen has completed both the Jewelry Essentials program and the Artist Blacksmith program at The Haliburton School of the Arts, as well as completing the Jewelry and Metals program at Georgian College. She has also attended The Penland School of Craft in North Carolina. She has worked on commission for The Royal Ontario Museum, The Children’s Aid Society, and the City of Toronto.

“I have this memory of when I was just a little girl, holding a piece of jewelry and thinking how special it was that someone’s hands could do that. It seemed like magic. I have always wanted to be that magician,” says Atkinson-Hindle. 

Her exhibit, ‘Without a Word’ will be at Artists on Elgin August 1st-31st. The public is invited for an opening reception August 3rd 5pm-8pm. Artists on Elgin is located at 168 Elgin Street, and is open Monday to Saturday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. For more information, please visit: http://artistsonelgin.ca/index.php/events/opening-reception
