RSVP deadline approaching for The Whisper Project artists’ Meet ‘n’ Greet

Only a few days remain to RSVP for the special Whisper Project at the Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre.

The creative focus on fibre art continues with the opening of its second spring exhibit, The Whisper Project – on now until April 30.

The exhibit follows the opening of The Thread of the Story, a showcase of imaginative and intricate works of fibre art, all individually inspired by artefacts from the Museum’s collections.

The Whisper Project, previously on display at the Stratford-Perth library, also celebrates the artistic medium of fibre, offering a playful take on the childhood game ‘telephone.’ Participating members of the Fergus-Guelph Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) pod were assigned into five groups with five members in each. The expectation was to complete a 12”x12” block within a two-month timeframe. Each member was welcome to use their own style and techniques when creating a piece inspired by previous work.

A total of 5 photographs inspired the 25 art quilts now on display at the BCM&CC, all showing a range of approaches and techniques.

Tying both exhibits together, the Museum will host an artist Meet & Greet on March 23rd from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Artists from both of the current fibre art exhibits on now at the BCM&CC will be present to answer questions and share more about their unique inspirations and processes in creating the incredible pieces on display.

The event is free for all. Light refreshments will be served. Those interested in attending are asked to RSVP online by March 16.
