ADAPT is a collection of fibre art maps by artist Tacha Reed, chronicling the shoreline of the Avon River, Minas Basin and Bay of Fundy over time. This series explores the scars left on the landscape as a result of the activities of mankind, reflecting the environment’s undeniable ability to adapt in response to man’s attempt to tame the land and sea.
September 27th, 7pm – 10pm
Join us for a community BBQ fundraiser in support of the facility’s ageing waterworks. Enjoy a preview of ADAPT and the museum’s latest exhibit Stewards of the Avon River, 1760-1860.
September 28th & 29th, 10am – 5pm
We begin the morning of the 28th with an artist talk at 11am, followed by an interactive art making activity commencing at 1pm and continuing throughout the remainder of the weekend. Collectively we will create a fibre art map of the Avondale Peninsula to later be auctioned off in support of upgrades to the water system. No previous felting experience necessary, tools and materials will be provided.
