Michèle Karch-Ackerman

Michèle Karch-Ackerman is a nationally recognized contemporary artist whose installations are known for inspiring viewers with their provocative and touching subject matter. For over thirty years her artistic practice has involved the devotional act of sewing clothing. Karch-Ackerman is an installation artist drawn to domestic, traditionally feminine, work: embroidery, needlepoint, knitting, dress and doll-making. Her work considers the dead, the forgotten, the and the hurting.

Throughout her career, Karch-Ackerman’s work has been exhibited in over forty solo exhibitions at public galleries across Canada including the Yukon Arts Centre (Yukon), Art Gallery of Grande Prairie (Alberta), McMichael Gallery (Kleinburg, ON), Tom Thomson Gallery (Owen Sound, ON) and The Rooms (St. John’s, Newfoundland).
