Avery Ascher

Avery Ascher creates and exhibits in a range of media, with particular focus on metalworking, basketmaking, and printmaking.  Explorations of matriarchal continuity, the process of making, and migration over time inform her work.  Natural found materials such as bone and bark provide particular design and structural inspiration for her art practice.  A group mentorship under the guidance of Manitoba artist Diana Thorneycroft in 2016-17 opened the door to her love of experimenting with three-dimensional form.
