Work of the Week: "Big Dipper" by Katie Ohe

Date: Jan 24, 2020

This week’s Work of the Week is Big Dipper by renowned Alberta artist Katie Ohe.

While an incredible retrospective celebrating Ohe’s sculptural works opens at the Esker Foundation tonight, we thought it would be fun to highlight one of Ohe’s two-dimensional artworks that are in the AFA’s collection.

The exhibition, Katie Ohe, is on view at the Esker Foundation from January 25 to May 3.
