Jenny Kuri to become intricate and convivial textile creatures.
The inspiration for Jenny's unique figures are shaped by her
interpretation of the natural world. An abundance of colourful
materials are used, specializing in felt. Jenny attended the
Ontario College of Art and Design, and the Nova Scotia College
of Art where she studied in the Material Art and Design program.
She now lives and works in Toronto. Her work can be found at
various shows around Toronto, and in private collections in
Canada, the U.S. and Germany. Her work has been shown regularly
at C1 Artspace in Toronto, at the Living Arts Centre in Mississauga,the
Toronto Outdoor Art Show in Nathan Phillips Square, and most
recently at the One of A Kind Christmas show at the Exhibition
Place. Some of Jenny's other interests include horticulture
and garden design. She loves playing outdoors and is currently
enrolled at the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture where she
gets to learn and explore the botanical gardens and butterfly

RED WAGON COLLECTIVE: DONATIONS
fabric, wool, embroidery floss, needles, crochet hooks, old
RED WAGON COLLECTIVE was formed in 2006 in response to our desire
to deepen our artistic, collaborative, and community-engaged
practices through residency projects that would enable us to
develop both intensive and extensive relationships in the Junction
- a rapidly changing neighbourhood in Toronto's west end. We
share a desire to work collaboratively with artists and non-artists
to create work that inspires new conversations; softens boundaries
between groups separated by age, culture, ability, and economic
status; promotes the presence of art in everyday life and contributes
to increasing public engagement in community development. The
work we create with communities is used in producing exhibitions,
public installations, and celebratory performance events.We
are currently working within the walls of the Evangeline Shelter.
Foundry specializes in edition printing, custom art reproduction
projects, and high-end photo-retouching work.
