Happenings 8: Contemporary Craft

Monday, April 24, 2017 from 6-9pm

This isnít your grandmotherís craft party! The current exhibiting artists push the boundaries of what craft can by using concepts that question social and political concerns. These artist receptions and art parties are designed for you to self-curate your own art experience. Happenings is a FREE event open to the public so bring your friends! And, Happenings #8 is a party that you wonít want to miss!

John Charles Reid from the Canadian Music Centre will be hosting a talk back after the show.
