Colour To Be Unboxed at the MVTM

Colours to dazzle and challenge will be on display at the Mississippi valley Textile Museum from December 20 to February 25, 2017.
The art group Out of the Box will present “Colour Unboxed” a show that celebrates exactly that. The exhibition features approximately 200 pieces from over 60 fibre artists, including 112 pieces showing interpretations of six colours of the colour wheel and black/white.
Out of the Box is group of Ottawa and area artists who are passionate about creating innovative and thought-provoking works of art with fibre, their preferred medium. They include machine and/or hand embroiderers, art quilters, weavers, felters, doll makers, embellishers, silk painters, dyers, as well as other needle workers and mixed media and fine artists. They come from all walks of life but are drawn together by their love of texture, colour, and creation.
Come and revel in the shades, hues, and tints, and let the vivid washes of colour brighten and invigorate the dreary months of winter. There will be a vernissage for the exhibit on January 14 from 2 to 4 p.m. For more information call the Museum at 613 256-3754. The Mississippi Valley Textile Museum is located at 3 Rosamond St. E. in Almonte.
