See My Corner of the World – CANADA, in Eastern Ontario until September 22, 2018

POPLAR  POINT by artist Jaynie Himsl, Weyburn, SK

Consider a road trip to the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum in Almonte ON, to see the the peripatetic My Corner of the World - Canada exhibit, featuring the work of 40 SAQA artists, eight of whom are from Atlantic Canada.

The exhibition has toured widely since its opening in May 2015. The response from thousands of visitors around the world – both fibre artists and the general public has been exceptional, calling it “magical” and “breathtaking”. 

Artwork of Maggie Vanderweit, Gunnel Hag, Holly McLean
 and Judith Martin greet visitors at the entrance of the Museum

The weekend September 8-9th might be a good time to visit, when hundreds of fibre enthusiasts come into the village of Almonte for FIBREFEST 2018.
