The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is pleased to re-open with this powerful show by two of Canada’s leading artists.
Master artisan and member of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts, Murray Gibson’s tapestries represent an exploration of female literary figures who are textile practitioners, and how their practices affect the fates of others (often men) or of themselves. One of Canada’s leading gold and silversmiths, Donald Stuart’s works are inspired by outstanding Canadian women. Homage is a collection of framed neckpieces created by the artist as a celebration and tribute to extraordinary Canadian women, past and present.
There will be a virtual artist’s talk, September 11, 7 pm. Registration opens July 17, 2021. Gallery opening date for public viewing to be announced. Please contact MVTM.ca for further information.
Murray Gibson and Donald Stuart are members of the Royal Canadian Academy of Arts.
