Have you visited the museum to see our current exhibition? Make sure to visit before Doug Maracle: Come Walk With Me is gone!Doug Maracle is Mohawk Nation, Bear Clan from Six Nations of the Grand River and is known around the world for his craftsmanship and artist works. It wasn’t until more recently that his hometown discovered his talents.This exhibition celebrates the diversity of Doug’s body of work. The work includes wood carvings, prints, and pen & ink sketches meshed with a sense of humour, history, and place.The viewer will learn about what inspired Doug’s artistic practice to encourage visitors to understand the process of sculpting techniques and encourage a younger generation to become interested in the connection between art and narrative of the Haudenosaunee culture within the context of the history of art in Canada. The exhibition provides a point of departure to open the context of craft vs fine art, identity, and process.This exhibition will be closing before we’re back from our Christmas break and unfortunately cannot be extended. Be sure to visit the museum before December 22 to see Doug’s incredible work.
