"Roly Fenwick Pow Wow Emanations "

Roly Fenwick’s life-long quest to convey the intangible found in nature becomes rejuvenated as depicted in this series of watercolour and oil paintings. This work recounts his experience of many times spent on the shores along Lake Huron & Georgian Bay specifically at Saugeen and Cape Croker. “My project was to join and enter the spirit of the First Nations community and spiritual celebrations and to evoke the texture of their culture through the cadences and movements of the Pow Wow. Colours in the regalia and dance rhythms reflect their spiritual heritage connections.” Roly Fenwick, 2017.  This exhibition is proudly presented by Community Foundation Grey Bruce and Saugeen Shores Community Fund.  This exhibit is open from September 15 to November 24, 2018.  

"Victorian Hang Ups: Symbolism & Sentiment" Did you know wreaths are more than a pretty way to decorate your door?  “Victorian Hang Ups: Symbolism & Sentiment” explores the history of wreaths, their rise in popularity during the Victorian Age, the symbolic meanings found within them and the different materials used to create them.  This exhibit is open from September 15 to October 31, 2018.
