Rental Collection 2018, Stewart Hall
Every year at this time Stewart Hall in Pointe Claire invites submissions to their rental collection. Of the 500 or so works of art submitted, about one quarter are chosen for the collection, and exhibited for a month in their lovely, brick-walled gallery.
This is a special anniversary for the Collection, marking their 50th year, and the selection process has been altered to encourage emerging artists to submit their work.
All the works chosen will be on view from October 28 to December 3, 2017. The opening is on Sunday, October 29, at 2 pm. The opening tends to be crowded, and is very much a social happening. Those interested in an opportunity to view the art in a quieter moment are advised to go at just about any other time.
And yes, I am delighted to have one of my new pieces in hand-dyed linen accepted into the show. This marks my seventh consecutive year as a participant.
Gallery hours are Monday - Sunday, 1 - 5 pm, and Wednesday 1 - 9 pm.
