Exhibition Description

Myth Making brings together three artists from Peru, Canada and the USA whose work is creating a new mythology.

Lima, Peru's Maximo Laura's stunning tapestries explore Andean mythology and stories. Peterbough's Faye Jacobs "tree spirit" sculpture combines tree roots with tapestry. Chicago artist Noel Morical's massive wall hangings made of paint chips give the sense of constructing a universe or cosmic blanket. She will be creating a new piece especially for this exhibition.

Common Thread International Exhibitions

The Common Thread International exhibitions are the flagship shows of the World of Threads Festival. Hundreds of artists from around the world submitted bodies of work, installations or individual pieces to the Festival. Multiple curators from various Oakville and Toronto galleries have created exciting exhibitions based on their own unique interests. We bring international contemporary fibre art to Oakville and the Toronto area as well as highlight the strength of our local artists.
