Fibre Art Exhibit comes to Wellington museum

ABOYNE - In celebration of Canada’s 150th  anniversary, Connections Fibre Artists have chosen over 40 “artefacts” from the Wellington County Museum’s collection as a source of inspiration for their contemporary fibre art creations.

The exhibit is on display from April 22 to June 4 at Wellington County Museum and Archives.

“ARTefacts will showcase a range of interpretive works of the highest technical and artistic quality, provoking a wide spectrum of interpretations and taking the viewer on a journey of discovery into the county’s past,” said  Amy Dunlop, curatorial assistant.

“With over 30 works of art on display, these pairings inspire conversations about our stories and moments in Canadian history.”

Connections coordinator Elizabeth Duggan Litch said, “Established in 1999, Connections Fibre Artists are dedicated to the exploration of fibre – cloth, thread, paper and mixed media, as an art form.

“The committee, volunteers and artists are very grateful to the staff for their enthusiastic support.”

The public is invited to an opening reception on April 23 from 1:30 to 3:30pm at the museum and archives.

The galleries are open weekdays from 9:30am to 4:30pm and on weekends from 1 to 5pm.

Admission is by donation.
