One of the longest running jurored art exhibitions in Ontario, Insights showcases works of art from emerging and established artists from Wellington County and the surrounding five counties. Organized and sponsored by the Elora Arts Council, the show opens on June 18th, 2009 at Wellington County Museum & Archives.
Ranging from the serious alongside the whimsical, traditional in partnership with exploratory, three-dimensional juxtaposed with delicate line drawings and fine stitchery – Insights provides a wealth of opportunities for young and old to embrace the experience of local art at its best. With over 300 works submitted for consideration, only 70 pieces are chosen by the jurors: award-winning visual artists Chris Ahlers, Mike Hayes and Tanya Zaryski.
Please join us at the opening reception on Wednesday, June 17th from 8 to 10 pm at the Wellington County Museum & Archives, between Fergus and Elora. A special award will be presented this year by the Insights Committee members in celebration of their 30th anniversary. The exhibit runs until Labour Day, September 7. Wellington County Museum & Archives is opened weekdays – 9:30 am to 4:30 pm and weekends & holidays – 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm.
