Adele Schatschneider

Adele Schatschneider grew up working on the ground level of pharmaceuticals, collecting horse urine as an ingredient in hormone replacement therapy medications for women going through menopause. With a diploma in Costume Cutting and Construction from Red Deer College and a BFA in Ceramics with distinction from the Alberta College of Art + Design (now the Alberta University of the Arts), Schatschneider has used her skills in a myriad of jobs such as a props assistant for a most wholesome local television show, a production seamstress for film and trade, and a cashier in various craft-based shops. With a need to keep her hands busy and a lifelong (and maybe genetic) fascination with textiles, Schatschneider exorcises her demons and pays homage to the people and province she loves by creating didactic imagery using historically feminine techniques. Schatschneider's current body of work explores her relationship with oil - both in the capacity of something that has helped her financially and something that is becoming increasingly divisive in the global market. She has shown work in both Alberta Craft Council locations and in Canmore at ArstPlace Canmore.
