PIECES OF HER
the WOMEN OF MICHEL
DIGITAL PORTRAIT INSTALLATIONS & STORY PODCAST
The mixed media exhibition and digital portraits combines digital story telling, podcast engagement and fine contemporary art installations that engage the subject of each story and the viewer.
The origin of the work of MASTER ARTIST Loughery is based in the stories and art of the women of the erased coal-mining town of Michel, Natal & Middletown, British Columbia.
The Women of Michel ART COLLECTIVE is a group of artist women from around the globe, some of who's lives were touched by living in the coal dust of a Canadian Coal Towns and some that made the journey to immigrate. Many the works also shine a lens on generational trauma, abuse, loss and hope.
The importance of this project is to capture the women's stories building communities and connecting generations with artist skills and the feminine thread that ties all women together. The return is in the telling of the stories through viewing and hearing the art of the women ofMichel. Piece by piece we share loss and hope for the future.
