About the event
We are so proud to be able to host talented artist Derya Kolcu and her art on our Gallery! Derya Kolcu was born in Turkiye and obtained her B.Sc. and M.A. Business Commerce degrees from Istanbul University followed later by her CPA designation in Canada. As an artist, she attended several silk fabric and porcelain painting programs and courses at well-known and influential Turkish hand-craft institutions and has participated in several exhibitions since 1993. Her work is inspired by traditional Turkish motifs and Iznik designs originating in Anatolia from the 15th to 17th century. She paints on hand-woven silk from the Birgi/Odemis region of Türkiye which was recently awarded and listed by the UNESCO affiliate - World Heritage Committee as natural and cultural assets. Ms. Kolcu is currently a Director and the Assistant Treasurer with the Women’s Arts Association of Hamilton. Her work has been displayed at several exhibitions at distinctive Ontario Art Galleries in recent years. Ms. Kolcu has been honoured as the Featured Artist of the year for 2023 by the McMaster University Art in The Workplace Association and her artworks will be exhibited at the McMaster Innovation Park all year around in 2023.
