Wayfinder Mentorship with Guest Artist Hanako Nagao E030

Wayfinder Mentorship with Guest Artist Hanako Nagao E030

June 4, 2022

Artist Loughery’s passion for mentoring is legendary in the youth projects she designed and executed. Through digital scaffolding connection this mentorship is still very much part of her art practice.

Indigenous Artist Hanako Nagao is a new mural talent from Golden, British Columbia. Her work is a lens of today to yesterday as she creates a stunning piece of Metis mural art for her community.

Hanako explored the process of the art story telling through much interaction, conversation and asking what the community wanted to see in the piece that would reflect so many.  Please join Michelle and Hanako as they talk art
murals and story telling as they take it to the wall  on AR:T ROUTE RADIO….

"To me art is simply how we communicate from the soul. Anything you create using emotion, creativity, and passion is art, whether with paint or clay or an instrument or your own body movement. Art brings us together, makes us think, helps us experience things that words may not be able to capture, provides entertainment and escape. Art is what makes life worth living. " - Artist Hanako Nagao

The Power of Film with Guest Actor-Filmmaker Ryan Boyko E028

The Power of Film with Guest Actor-Filmmaker Ryan Boyko E028

April 12, 2022

In this episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio Michelle invites artist, actor and filmmaker, Ryan Boyko onto the digital scaffolding to discuss the crisis in Ukraine.  Loughery as a internee descendant was featured in an episode of the documentary series “The Camps” and award winning documentary “That Never Happened” that Ryan produced.

The work shines a light on the Canadian Internment of Austro Europeans during World War One. Both artists talk about the fact we are reliving history in the most horrible travesty.

Ryan’s advocacy to get cameras as weapons into the hands of a Ukraine filmmakers is indicative of the passion Ryan has for authentic film making and championing for human rights. The lens of many will be a historic kaleidoscope of the crisis and use of the power of film making to support Ukraine.  

 

ART_ROUTE_Radio_Guest_Ryan_Boyko.png

 

As a youth living in Saskatchewan Ryan was not interested in his Ukrainian heritage.  A documentary that touched on Ukrainian internment operations in Canada during the First World War that Ryan saw changed that interest. 

Struck by what he saw, he asked his 10th-grade history teacher about the internment operations. “You mean the Japanese internment during the Second World War?” the teacher clarified.

“No,” Boyko answered. “I mean the Ukrainian internment during the First World War.”

What his teacher said next stunned Boyko: “That never happened.”

Decades later those words are the title of a the documentary, “That Never Happpened “ directed and co-written by Boyko, that traces the Canadian government’s internment operations between 1914 and 1920.

Boyko is also the Producer if the documentary series on the same subject called “The Camps”.

Loughery and her family’s story are included in both documentaries

Talking to the Sunflowers with Guest Artist Jill Meredith E027

Talking to the Sunflowers with Guest Artist Jill Meredith E027

April 1, 2022

In this episode of AR:T ROUTE Radio, Loughery spends studio time with Artist and Art Educator Jill Meredith. The conversation is multi-layered in the gentle ethereal quality of Jill’s work and processes. The arts as an education and healing tool have many layers in the processes and the work artists such as Jill are brave enough to create.  As a high school teacher Jill’s students, just like her clay sculptures, are molded and led to embrace their natural skills, and each engagement takes a hands on approach that is evident when watching Jill work with her students, or in art collaborations.

The two artists discuss the power of art in education have how they have included this passion in their lives and why.  An open authentic conversation of the journey to choose art as a career or does the career chose the artist. The natural teaching that art in education provides, that is so evident in the beautiful works of Jill Meredith.

Unexpected Similarities of Art with Guest Artist Angela Hansen E025

Unexpected Similarities of Art with Guest Artist Angela Hansen E025

March 13, 2022

The digital scaffolding reveals an environmental kinship of the power of art to evoke change. Artist Angela Hansen is well known for her evocative encaustic work. The work she produces is thoughtful, and invites the viewer to engage with the intricacies of the wax medium and forms she creates. Hansen has a passion of all things in nature, and her work is a storybook event of education, beauty and viewer participation.

Loughery and Hansen discover their childhood wax fascination has similar beginnings, and the two artists embrace the connection that the love of creating and teaching brings to both of their practices. Make a tea and smell the aroma of beeswax, and imagine a studio conversation where the honey bees are welcome.

The Vernon Mural Project - The City of Vernon Mural E023

The Vernon Mural Project - The City of Vernon Mural E023

February 24, 2022

The Walls revealed series on AR:T ROUTE Radio.

Loughery has spent decades on walls around the world. The murals themselves are thematic legends, but Loughery believes the act and event each mural created, is the true story and art behind the murals.

This series of stories will be told by Loughery as she reminisces about the communities, and the people that stopped by the walls to say hello, drop off a coffee, and tell her their story. Each paint stroke reveals a memory, or a special person who left their mark on the enormous works of freehand art. As the series continues, more heartfelt and pervasive stories will be revealed.  A light will be shed on the community work that was the engine to the Wayfinder Youth program, and the social art project that helped create hundreds of artists, wayfinders, timekeepers, mentors and leaders around the globe.

Community Art is the thread that ties a community together. ” - Master Artist & Visionary Michelle Loughery.

 

Michelle Loughery is an internationally respected thought leader, Artist, Project Manager and art educator.  Loughery has worked in the field of community public art for 30 years and has created hundreds of large-scale fine art murals and projects.  Follow the links to learn more about Artist and Visionary Michelle Loughery and Loughery's signature, award-winning The Wayfinder Project.
