Teresa Baker: Open Studio
On Saturday, July 16th from 11.30 am to 1.30 pm artist-in-residence Teresa Baker hosted an open studio at the Tower Studio in Shoal Bay.
Through a mixed media practice combining artificial and natural materials together, Baker creates abstracted landscapes that explore vast space, and how we move, see, and explore within them. The materials, textures, shapes and color relationships are guided by Baker’s Mandan/Hidatsa culture to explore how identity can relate to innate objects.Teresa Baker (b. 1985) is an enrolled member of the Three Affiliated Tribes in Western, ND.
