Fibre artists eye Group of Seven

More than two dozen fibre artists pay tribute to the Group of Seven through textile art on display at the Wellington County Museum and Archives.
“The members of Connections Fibre Artists accepted the challenge to design their own original art that reflects their individual research into the artists, the paintings and the styles of the Group of Seven,” Connections co-ordinator Sharron Begg said in news release.
The exhibition, simply titled “Celebrating the Seven,” runs until June 8.
Each of the artists approached the theme differently, said Begg – “inspired by their own memories of the Canadian landscape, by an emotional response to a particular artist or painting, or by some of the techniques and colour palettes used by these iconic Canadian artists.”
The museum, located between Fergus and Elora on Wellington Road 18, is open weekdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Saturdays and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m.
