Hi Everyone...

Here we are in a Provincial 'shutdown again" effective today, April 3, 2021.  I am sharing this important notice from Tracey Lawko about the status of the COLOUR WITH A U and the sister exhibition, COLOUR WITH A U TOO. Hoping you have a good Easter weekend and that you will all continue to stay in touch as you move through the next 28 days.


Gallery Closures are affecting both

Colour with a U and Colour with a U Too

Ontario has just entered a new lockdown and this is affecting both of our exhibitions.

Agnes Jamieson Gallery in Minden, showing Colour with a U Too, is closed until further notice.

The Muse, Lake of the Woods Museum, in Kenora is all ready to show Colour with a U, but will not open on April 6th as planned. The gallery is closed until further notice.

We look forward to when these galleries can once again welcome visitors and you can see these wonderful art quilts in person!

Colour with a U Too
Agnes Jamieson Gallery
Minden, Ontario, Canada
March 16 - April 10, 2021

Colour with a U Too is a juried exhibition of 9 art quilts created by Canadian SAQA members. In Canada, we spell colour with a “u”. We care about the “u”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. Nine artists have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical, and physical landscape.

Gallery location:
Minden, ON

Masks required. Maximum 10 people at a time. No appointment necessary. https://mindenhills.ca/agnes-jamieson-art-gallery/

Best regards.

DRAWN FROM DELIGHT

 LORRAINE ROY, Artist

An Exhibition of Textile Art by Lorraine Roy is currently open at the Jordan Gallery until April 30, 2021.

Raised in rural Southwestern Ontario, Roy completed an Honours B.SC in Horticultural Science before opening for a professional career in art textiles. Kindled by an early love of hand embroidery, she eventually learned to 'paint' with fabric using her sewing machine.

All of her work explores connections between art, science, and nature, and most of her imagery is inspired by the biology, mythology, and cultural impact of trees, classic symbols of our connection with the natural world. Lorraine continues to search for insightful and joyful ways to portray our rich and complex kinship with plants and creatures.

The Jordan Art Gallery is currently showing Lorraine Roy's textile artwork in its Spotlight Exhibition space. The Gallery is open 10 am to 5 pm.

Please check before visiting after March 14th, 
as hours may change due to COVID restriction updates.
