Mary Anne Barkhouse

Mary Anne Barkhouse (Minden, Ontario) examines environmental concerns and indigenous culture through the use of animal imagery―wolves, ravens, moose and beaver are juxtaposed against a diversity of background situations. Barkhouse was born in Vancouver, BC, and belongs to the Nimpkish band, Kwakitul First Nation. She graduated with Honours from the Ontario College of Art in Toronto and has exhibited widely across Canada. Barkhouse works in various media such as sculpture, photography and jewellery. A member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Art, Barkhouse’s work can be found in the collections of the Art Bank of the Canada Council for the Arts, UBC Museum of Anthropology, Banff Centre for the Arts and the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs. In addition she has public art installations at Thunder Bay Art Gallery, University of Western Ontario in London, McMichael Canadian Art Collection and the Millennium Walkway in Peterborough, Ontario. Recent exhibitions include Boreal Baroque, a touring exhibition initiated by the Robert McLaughlin Art Gallery that toured to the Mendel Art Museum in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Gallery Stratford in Stratford, Ontario and others in 2007-2008, the Toronto Alternative Art Fair International, Toronto (2005), Zsa Zsa Gallery (2005), Toronto, and McMaster Museum of Art, Hamilton, Ontario (2005).
