Gallery details and opening times
Thirty tapestry artists – 15 from Canada and 15 from England – have created small-format tapestries that reflect their personal interpretation of the word “interface”. The small scale of the works - no larger than 25 cm. square – challenged the artists to concisely express their artistic concepts. For all the artists, “interface” is ultimately about relationships and connections: within families and cultural heritage; between human presence and the natural environment; within society and contemporary politics; or the abstract interface between the artist and tapestry loom.
Interface is coordinated by Tapestry Touring International, an exhibition-specific collective of the participating artists.
Presented by the StFX Art Gallery, in partnership with MSVU Art Gallery, and sponsored in part by yarnworthy. Funded in part by the Museums Assistance Program, administered by the Department of Canadian Heritage.
