Art Gallery of Burlington (AGB) is hosting April Mitchell-Boudreau this Thursday (Sept. 7).
Mitchell-Boudreau is the founder and CEO of Lofttan convertible jewellery, and a Niagara-based multi-disciplinary artist, designer, and proud Indigenous entrepreneur, who is a member of the Mohawk Nation with roots at Six Nations.
Lofttan (a word composed of the first initials of nieces and nephews) is designed and made in Niagara on the traditional lands of the Haudenosaunee and Anishnaabe people. Mitchell-Boudreau infuses her design work with traditional materials imagined in a contemporary context and is committed to the Medicine of creative expression.
As a new artist to the AGB shop, Mitchell-Boudreau's pieces will be available for purchase during the event and she will be on hand to discuss her convertible strand system jewellery in person.
The artist will be at the 1333 Lakeshore Rd. gallery from 2-5 p.m. on Sept. 5. Admission is free, and open to the public.
There will also be a Sip and Shop session during the evening, available to AGB members, from 7 to 9 p.m.
