    Gallery 101 is pleased to welcome Cree and Métis artist, educator, and mother Michelle Sound for her solo exhibition: We Take Care of Us.

    We Take Care of Us explores personal and familial narratives with a consideration of Indigenous artistic processes. Through drum making, caribou hair tufting, beadwork, and photography Michelle Sound engages traditional practices with contemporary materials and processes to highlight themes of maternal labour, identity, relationships to land, and cultural knowledges. By invoking the bold personalities and stories of her aunties and mother, Michelle’s works celebrate acts of care and joy rooted in family and community.
