MVTM Show: Colour with a U (Quilts)

Sun, 01 May 2022 - Sat, 02 Jul (each Tue Wed Thu Fri)

Time: 1:00PM - 4:00pm

Apr 30 - Jul 2. Colour with a U is a juried exhibition of 35 art quilts created by Cdn SAQA members. In Canada, we spell colour with a “u”. We care about the “u”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. 44 artists have reflected on the theme of diversity & inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Cdn cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Cdns see ourselves in our social, historical, & physical landscape.
