Three Women centers on the creative lives of Susanna Bauer, Bernadette Greuel and Sister Maureen Maier. All three grew up in rural Saskatchewan and succeeded in forging a unique path within a place and time where options were limited. Susanna makes art from whatever she finds around her, be it pinecones, seeds, bark, feathers or road kill. Bernadette writes and recites poetry inspired by her role as a mother and farmer’s wife. Sr Maureen works tirelessly to preserve the history of her prairie sisterhood and is largely responsible for saving the convent where she became a nun at age 18.
Serena McCarroll received her BFA from Emily Carr University and her MFA from Ryerson University. She has exhibited work in galleries across Canada. Her book about moving to rural Saskatchewan, All Citizens, was published by Conundrum Press in 2012. She currently lives in Toronto.
