In her work, Macbeth tells stories using many forms and mediums.

“Our lives, our history, our worlds are made of stories,” says a press release about the show. “The intention behind her work is for the viewer to hear the story she is telling, but also begin a tale of their own, with their own experiences leading their interpretation.”

Macbeth’s work is based on material from books.

“Led by an emotional response to the imagery, Macbeth extracts her material from books, cutting them by hand and weaving them together until a balanced image is formed,” the release says.

An opening reception is set for Wednesday, Oct. 3 from 6 to 8 p.m. A discussion with the artist, part of the gallery’s Inter/Action series, is set for Sunday, Oct. 14 from 3 to 4 p.m.

The Gallery at Queen’s Park is in Centennial Lodge. It’s open Wednesdays from 1 to 8 p.m. and Thursdays through Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m.
