Virtual Vernissage: Gentle Setting

Thursday May 7th at 7pm

Via Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89267818135

To highlight National Mental Health Week, and as part of the Fiber Art II class at Bishop’s University, Maïthé Cyr-Morin created an inclusive project with members of the community. The exhibition Cycle Délicat // Gentle Setting is a collective artwork where the theme of mental health is central. During the workshops held in March and April, participants dyed, painted, embroidered and sewed their T-Shirt using writing and illustration in order to share their opinions, their emotions and/or their experience.

During the vernissage the work will be shown, and Mrs. Cyr-Morin will talk about the artistic process along with several participants in the workshops. Presented in partnership with My Shack, my future, my choices.
