Licensed to Show series are built to provide access to the Contemporary Fibre Collection held by Cambridge Art Galleries and to further the conversations of preservation and presentation of art works.

Licensed to Show Part 3 features ten artists whose practices incorporate diverse approaches to embroidery. Instead of a traditional opening reception, we will be hosting a free tour as part of Culture Days on Saturday September 28, and a free embroidery workshop, led by artist Stephanie Clarke, on Saturday, October 5.

Cambridge Art Galleries | Idea Exchange presents contemporary art, architecture and design from three galleries in the City of Cambridge: Design at Riverside, Preston, and Queen’s Square.

Cambridge Art Galleries acknowledges that the place on which we gather is the traditional land of Indigenous peoples dating back countless generations. We recognize that it is part of the Haldimand Tract, the traditional land of the Six Nations of the Grand River and Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation.
