On the second floor are two galleries featuring rotating displays from the Museum’s permanent collection, and travelling exhibits of all descriptions.
MY CORNER OF THE WORLD
EXTENDED UNTIL FEBRUARY 12, 2017.
*Due to overwhelming visitor numbers in January, this exhibit has been extended for a two-week period and will now be on display until February 12th.*
My Corner of the World invited 40 Canadian artists and 40 International artists to examine a world, real or imagined, that represented what is important in life. It might be where the artist resides, works, or grew up. It might be a favourite place from any point in life or a special internal place. My Corner of the World looks at the big picture including, but not limited to a homeland, ancestry or culture. The result was this colourful exhibition of 80 exquisite art quilts developed by the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA) in collaboration with the Stratford Perth Museum and with the Canadian Regions of SAQA.
