Vernissage: Saturday, June 10 from 2pm to 4pm
“Weaving Past into Present” by Weavers Unlimited (Ottawa, ON area) will mark Canada’s 150th year with a contemporary wearable art exhibit of handwoven shawls. This exhibit will include artists in the group that have deep roots in Canada as well as those members who are of more recent vintage. This exhibit will showcase each artist’s diversity in contemporary weaving. Each artist has designed and woven a shawl that reflects her heritage. Displayed with each shawl will be an image showing the inspiration and an explanation of its importance to the weavers’s heritage.
