Suspended in Time: Woven Pages and Wooden Letters

by: Karen LeBlanc


In 2023-2024, "Suspended in Time: Woven Pages and Wooden Letters " by Karen LeBlanc was commissioned by the Province of New Brunswick for Hanwell Park Academy as part of the Public Art Policy for New Brunswick.

"Suspended in Time: Woven Pages and Wooden Letters" is a multi-media piece incorporating a woven "sheet of paper", antique wooden letter blocks and coloured pencils. The piece was inspired by moments of growth, learning and break-through and incorporates the words "make your mark".

She weaves table runners, overshot throws, and tapestries for walls. She has exhibited locally, regionally, nationally and internationally.
