Upcoming exhibition @ the MVTM

Brooklyn #6, hand-dyed cotton, 24 x 24

I am delighted to have been invited to participate in a two-woman show at the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, in Almonte, ON. Some twenty of my cityscapes will be on display, along with the work of British textile artist Anne Kelly.

The show will open on Saturday, January 19, with a reception from 2 - 4 pm. Anne and I both plan to be on hand so please consider attending.

The museum is a national historic site, and its permanent exhibit showcases the history of the textile industry in Eastern Ontario.

The museum's second floor is filled with artefacts from
the area's history as a centre for textile manufacture.

Almonte itself is a charming example of small-town Ontario, so plan to spend a little time there, checking out its caf├ęs and shops.

The museum's winter hours are Tuesday - Friday 10 am - 4 pm and Saturday noon - 4 pm, closed on Sunday and Monday.

The show continues until March 23, 2019.
