New print release: this week the Working Proof is teaming up with artist Sarah Burwash to bring you her print The Fox Sisters to benefit Victory Junction. I enjoyed finding out through Sarah’s interview that there is an interesting history story behind this print:
The Fox sisters were three sisters who played an important role in the creation of Spiritualism. The Fox sisters were born in a small farming community, Consecon (near Belleville), Ontario. Last winter I attended a residency near this community and was researching the area, more specifically notable women who settled in the back woods of that area in the early 1800s, such as Susanna Moodie. I came across the Fox sisters in my research and was intrigued and decided to make some drawings around their enticing story.
