The Unwind/AureliaWool Two Dimensional Felt Award for 2016 goes to June Jacobs for her work SHARDS.
Each component of “Shards” reflects the process of the wind as it whips over snow, as it eats at it, reshaping it. Heated by the suns rays, it re-shapes again and it re-freezes and is newly transformed. “Shards” represents this delicate balance that humans occupy in relationship to their environment.
Jacobs has exhibited her artworks nationally and internationally and has participated in Artist Residencies in Vallauris, France; Quebec City and Banff. For 30+ years, Jacobs has made sustained contributions to the arts community as a creator, mentor, educator, promoter and organizer. She lives and works in Meacham, Saskatchewan. http://www.handwave.ca
