Artist List posted for the International Exhibition that will be traveling along with MY CORNER OF THE WORLD - CANADA

Limestone City Blues, Linda Coulter

Artists Selected for My Corner of the World (Canada) 

My Corner of the World (Canada) invited the artist to create a glimpse of the spirit of Canada; to convey through their art something true, meaningful and important about this beautiful country and its people.

This exhibition will debut along with the parallel all-SAQA My Corner of the World exhibition at the Stratford Perth Museum, Stratford, Ontario, in May 2016. 
Juror:  Micaela Fitzsimmons

Micaela Fitzsimmons is the Manager of Collections and Exhibits at the Stratford Perth Museum in Stratford, Ontario.  In addition to developing exhibits on the history and culture of this eclectic community, at once a rural agricultural community as well as a renowned centre of artistic culture, she cares for the museum’s collection which includes a significant number of heritage quilts. 

An award-winning printmaker and textile artist, her own work is an exploration of juxtapositions and repetition, and is often focused on social justice themes. She has exhibited in juried and group shows across Ontario, as well as in international travelling exhibitions. Her work is in the permanent collection of the Great Lakes Quilt Center at the Michigan State University Museum.

Premiere Venue:

Stratford Perth Museum May 21-August 14, 2016
