Art on stage
Original, handcrafted up cycled textile art returns to Sandbanks Music Festival!
Off the heels of receiving the Helen Gregor Award as part of Craft Ontario’s 40th Anniversary, Suendrini once again brings her eco-friendly spotlight as part of her on-going body of work, Artful Waste, to the environmental concerns of climate change.
Sandbanks Music Festival 2016’s art on stage was inspired by Japanese artist of the Edo period, Katsushika Hokusai’s iconic pieces on Water. Suendrini created a five-piece customized art installation, titled, “Blue” that brought awareness to the powerful subject matter.
The projections in the The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s (OECD) Environmental Outlook to 2050 suggest that freshwater availability will be strained unless new policies, awareness building and actions are taken to improve the current outlook.
