Exhibition at Hamilton Place


Tuesday October 4th our Guild was invited to showcase some of the activities and artworks for the Gala during the 2011 Summit organized by the Tourism and Culture provincial representations.

The Summit is an annual forum for the tourism industry to share the latest trends, be exposed to new ideas and best practices, and network with colleagues. Entitled 'Taking Care of Business,' the 2011 conference theme will focus on insightful strategies to help us inspire and engage today's highly sophisticated and connected travellers and will include a series of keynote presentations and hands-on workshops.

3 of our members, Yamile Roa and Ixchel Suarez and Stella Tang presented some of her works in weaving and wearable art.

Below we see Yamile with a tapestry she is weaving for her son and will be given to him in December.

Members of the Oakville Art Society also participated in the exhibitions organized for the Halton Region displaying artists on site painting in acrylics.

More than 300 people attended the event. Great comments where given to our Guild, encouraging us to continue to preserve the traditional techniques in spinning and weaving through a contemporary lens.

Even though it was a one day event, which involved setting and picking up all the display, it was really worth the efforts.
