The "second wave" Breathe. exhibit is at the Art Gallery of Guelph until October 10. TBS members Naomi Smith, Lisa Carlin and Christina Kappas Dufrene have masks at this exhibit.
On July 8, 2021, the Art Gallery of Guelph hosted a virtual conversation with artists from the Breathe collective, including founders Nathalie Bertin and Lisa Shepherd, as well as Teresa Burrows, Don Kwan, Naomi Smith, and Taalrumiq, who reflected on how resilience can be redefined through collective artmaking. Together they discussed the varied creative approaches to the masks on view in the exhibition Breathe, exploring how the activation of craft in a shared digital space can promote generative spaces and processes of communal healing in the 21st century.

At our September 2020 meeting, Metis artist Nathalie Bertin talked to us about "Breathe." a facebook group she co-founded with Lisa Sheppard which turned into a touring museum exhibit. The original collection is now at the Royal Alberta Museum.
