Trail Artist to Showcase Work

Regional | by Daryl Morris  

Ann Marie Hadcock of Wiarton has received two grants to show off natural sculptures.

 

An artist from the Bruce Peninsula plans to showcase her work across Canada, along national trails.

Ann Marie Hadcock of Wiarton has received two government grants to help her with her work.

She used her work on the Bruce Trail near Tobermory to win a 20 thousand dollar project grant from the Canadian Art Council.

She also received five thousand dollars for the Ontario Art Council's Emerging Artist Grant.

Hadcock says her work is outdoor installation sculptures, but they can fold down and be moved to different areas.

She says she designs the sculptures out of natural fibres and recycled materials, and works them into the natural landscape, using the surrounding nature as part of the installation.

Hadcock says it's an interesting way for the public to discover art as well, because they aren't in an art gallery and aren't expecting to see art.

Hadcock says she's never had an opportunity to travel Canada, but she would like to at some point.

When she submitted her application to the Canadian Art Council she proposed to do the same type of installation on trails in national parks across the country.

She hasn't yet decided when she will travel the country in an RV with her artwork.
