Bona Fide: handmade and homemade

1 April to 5 June 2011

Bona Fide is an exhibition which celebrates the work being done by artists in Sackville, elsewhere in Canada and internationally who are interested in materials and methods traditionally associated with craft and the handmade. The work in the exhibition covers a range of media broadly inscribed by the acronym DIY, so as to embrace embroidery, sewing, knitting, and crocheting, as well as silk-screening and posters, drawing, film, and paper cutting. The artists in the exhibition are: Amalie Atkins (Saskatoon), Elisabeth Belliveau (Montreal), Rachel Beth Egenhoefer (Oakland, California), Leah Garnett (Sackville, NB), Paul Henderson (Sackville, NB), Yoko Homareda (Nantes, France), The Little Friends of Printmaking (Milwaukee, Wisconsin), Jane McKeating (Manchester, England), Deirdre Nelson (Glasgow, Scotland), Karen Reimer (Chicago, Illinois) and Candice Tarnowski (Montreal).

The exhibition coincides with an important community event taking place in Sackville, New Brunswick from 31 March to 3 April entitled A Handmade Assembly which will bring to together artists from the region and away to give talks, lead workshops, start projects, and share ideas.
