60th Anniversary of Anglican Foundation of Canada presents: (in)finite spiritual conversations in cloth

June 1 @ 8:00 am - June 4 @ 5:00 pm

Free

This exhibition features thirty Canadian textile artists and their explorations into the realm of the sacred. The works span an array of traditional and innovative textile media.Including new perspectives on centuries-old religious vestments, liturgical items and ritual practices, and radical reinterpretations of sacred space and private meditation, the work of these artists offers significant insight into the important role cloth plays in the Canadian contemporary spiritual landscape.

Whether these artists are challenging their concepts of the unknown, the immensity of the cosmos, or looking to engage in intimate private meditations, they find in their work a means to contemplate the world around them, participate in the act of creation, and even engage in silent prayer. Please join us and become part of this spiritual conversation in textiles.
