More Than Me: A Creative Interface is an exhibition featuring the artwork of Dianne Lister and Diane Reesor.

Dianne Lister (photographer) and Diane Reesor (textile-based fibre artist) have created an "inter-art" exhibition which illustrates the creative call and response toward each other's art through the mounting of new creative pieces. The staging of 2-D and 3-D art work and text panels express the inspiration for co-creation and artistic interface. Works include photographs, collages, embroidery, weaving, acrylic art, soft sculpture, poetry and found objects.

Exhibition Dates: Open to the public May 4 - May 15, 2024. Free admission.

Exhibition hours: Tuesday to Sunday, 11:00a.m. to 4:00p.m. Closed on Monday.

Opening Reception/Artist Talk: Saturday May 11th, from 2:00 - 4:00pm

At the Opening Reception/Artist Talk, the artists will invite commentary by visitors on the exhibition and will collate responses after the exhibition is taken down.

Location: Tett Gallery (Room 109 on the 1st floor/bottom level)



Dianne Lister is a multi-media artist whose work is grounded in photography. She has mounted solo and group photography exhibits since 1995 focusing on visual storytelling. She often uses the technique of "intervention" - placing a personal object in an austere environment to explore themes of identity, independence and solitude. She has exhibited in Scotiabank CONTACT Photo Festival (1998, 2013), SPARK Photo Festival (since inception in 2013). Her work has won awards in juried shows in Ontario. The exhibition "The Travelling Blue Dress Project" (2018) was a successful month-long show held at the Kawartha Art Gallery. Her most recent exhibit, "Grey Matters," (2023) was a collaboration with Michael Harris experimenting with finding the backbone of an image through digital black & white photography.

Diane Reesor grew up with strong connections to an Old Order Mennonite community, a culture of plain people who wasted nothing, and cherished everything. Doing patch work, making clothes and creating fine needlework were valuable skills passed on from women to women. Her grandfather was a harness maker and taught her to sew with less traditional materials, and the importance of good design and properly made patterns. Reesor's textile-based fibre art has expanded over the decades to allow her to create and interpret through embroidery, weaving and collage with an understanding of silk screen, dye technology and soft sculpture.Diane creates hand-made original works of art by commission through her business, Sentimental Cloth, and exhibits regularly in art fairs and festivals. | FB @Sentimental Cloth
