Among the Garbage and the Flowers

Among the Garbage and the Flowers

The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is proud to announce the opening of
Among the Garbage and the Flowers
August 5th, 2023 from 2-4pm. Many of the artists will be present. The show continues until October 7th.

Eleven artists, curated by Susan Avishai, will demonstrate how they reimagine and redefine cast-off textiles and old clothing. Through artistic reuse, they tangibly demonstrate the dignity of labour, the respect for materials, and perhaps an even greater understanding of the creative process itself.

The Artists (L to R):

Top–Liz Pead (Toronto & Fenelon Falls, ON), Sonia Jacyk-Bukata (Guelph, ON),  Amy Meissner (Anchorage, AK), Susan Avishai (Toronto, ON),

Middle–Melanie Siegel (Toronto, ON), Sandra Smirle (Montreal, QC), Alice Vander Vennen (Cobourg, ON),

Bottom–Judy Martin (Manitoulin Island, ON),  Leisa Rich (Howe Island, ON), Carole Baillargeon (Deschambault-Grondines, QC), and Judith Tinkl (Sunderland, ON).
