EXHIBITION OPENING RECEPTION

Kitimat Museum Exhibition Opening Reception

Kitimat Quilters Guild Exhibition
From May 12 to June 10, 2017

"The Kitimat Quilter’s Guild Exhibition" showcases hand and machine stitched textiles; quilts, wall hangings, runners, placemats and other objects. Fabrics of all colours, shapes and patterns are combined and sewn, resulting in styles that range from traditional to modern. Together, these creations are testimony to hours of workmanship by local Guild members. Many of the quilts are spectacular in their quality and sheer size, yet even the smallest item, an étui box (a Victorian style novelty needle holder) provides delight in its intricacy.

The Kitimat Quilter’s Guild is holding a raffle of 2 prizes to raise money for the Canadian Liver Foundation in honour of Audrey Rice. The first prize is a quilt, “Maple Leaf”, and the second prize is a wall hanging, “Celebrating Canada”; both can be viewed in the upstairs gallery of the Kitimat Museum as part of the show.

The Kitimat Quilter’s Guild is a non-profit group providing a space for quilters to create beautiful quilt projects for the community. Community quilts are given to local families in difficult circumstances such as a house fire, or medical trauma. One weekend each month the Quilter’s Guild comes together for a weekend to work on unfinished objects and projects.  Sometimes they also bring in teachers to provide workshops on different techniques. Every April, quilters of the northwest come together for a 3-day quilt retreat to share knowledge, projects, and comraderie.

Link to Call for Entry at Kitimat Museum“Coming Together in Kitimat: Canada 150 Impressions”
A call for entry for local artists to celebrate and commemorate Canada’s 150th Anniversary
Exhibition: June 16 – August 5, 2017

Kitimat is multi-ethnic, representative of many communities across Canada. This is an opportunity for local artists to express their views and impressions on their community and country through the visual arts media. Artists will create their own Kitimat “landscapes” to express feelings for their country, Canada.  The “landscapes” could be traditional, or non-traditional such as mountains, rivers, and ocean and feature local flora or fauna, dreamscapes, or urban landscapes (interior and exterior).  Artists are welcome to include a written statement or quote to accompany their art work. These pieces may be for sale if the artist wishes.

For more details and deadlines contact Angela Eastman at aeastman@kitimatmuseum.ca
