A Connections Fibre Artists' Exhibit

April 22 - June 4, 2017

Opening Sunday, April 23
1:30 to  3:30 pm

In celebration of Canada's 150th anniversary, Connections Fibre Artists have chosen over 40 "artefacts" from the Museum's collection as a source of inspiration for their contemporary fibre art creations. 

ARTeFACTS will showcase a range of works of the highest technical and artistic quality, provoking a wide spectrum of interpretations and taking the viewer on a journey of discover into the County's past. With over thirty works of art on display, these pairings inspire conversations about our stories and moments in Canadian history.

Established in 1999, Connections Fibre Artists are dedicated to the exploration of fibre - cloth, thread, paper and mixed media, as an art form.

  "We are pleased to have created works inspired by the Museum," says Elizabeth Duggan Litch, a member of Connections Fibre Artists. "My piece Stand on Guard is connected to the Canadian National Anthem, representing the things Canadians nurture and protect."
