Please join the CONNECTIONS Fibre Artists at the Wellington County Museum and Archives September 15, 2019 for the Opening Reception for their re: FASHION Fibre Art Exhibition, 1-3 pm


The Connections Fibre Artists invite you to visit their 2019 Exhibition Opening Sunday, September 15, 2019, at the Wellington County Museum and Archives, from 1-3 pm. Do plan a visit and bring friends.
On display from Sept. 15 to  Jan. 5, this unique exhibit features fibre art that was inspired by clothing and accessories in the museum’s artifact collection.
“It was difficult to choose just one artifact for inspiration,” said Elizabeth Litch, Connections member. 
“We felt so fortunate to have been shown hats, shoes, undergarments, and clothing for all ages. We hope that visitors will enjoy our choices and the art they inspired.”
“Working with cloth, thread, paper, and mixed media, each artist has interpreted their chosen artifact as a contemporary work of art,” said curator Hailey Johnston. “It’s fascinating to see the characteristics and stories behind each artifact rendered so skillfully through fiber.”
Established in 1999, Connections Fibre Artists is dedicated to the exploration of fibre as an art form. Coming together from diverse creative backgrounds, members work together to raise awareness of fibre art and to develop their talents by exchanging ideas and sharing new skills and techniques.
All are welcome, admission by donation.
Wellington County Museum and Archives is located on Wellington Road 18 between Fergus and Elora.
