ZooGuest Speaker @8:15pm - Deborah Margo

Born in Montreal, long time OrH member, Deborah Margo lives in Ottawa. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University and a Master of Fine Arts from Temple University/Tyler School of Art in Philadelphia. She has also studied at the Haystack School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine and the Banff Centre in Banff, Alberta (Canada). Since 1984, Margo has exhibited in Canada, Mexico and the United States, participating in solo and group projects.

Deborah Margo's work combines different disciplines including sculpture and multi-media ephemeral installations. Her working process is both conceptual and intuitive, based on research yet open to so-called accidents. Time, change, and touch are key preoccupations. Current interests link her gardening practice with the making of textile-based sculptures. For the past five years she has been making dye gardens on urban and rural sites; mindfully foraging dye plants; making natural dyes and applying them to a variety of textiles. Most recently, she has been dying locally milled wools and integrating them into her knitted works.

Margo is an Adjunct Professor member in the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa where she teaches undergraduate and graduate students in visual arts (sculpture, painting, installation practices). During the spring and summer months she works as a professional gardener designing, maintaining, and consulting on private gardens in the Ottawa Valley.

For Freylekh Friday’s talk, Deborah will be presenting her recent research linking her gardening and art practices.
