Three prominent Dundas locations, Dundas Valley School of Art, Carnegie Gallery and Dundas Museum & Archives, are joining forces to present Winterblooms: A Celebration of Art, Artifacts and Flowers. The four day event, running from January 28 – 31, will feature exhibits of original artworks and precious artifacts, accompanied by fresh floral arrangements that take their inspiration from their paired work of art.
“We wanted to do something unique and bring warmth and colour to what can be a dreary winter,” says Claire Loughheed, Executive Director for Dundas Valley School of Art. Admission to the exhibits at each location is free. At Dundas Valley School of Art and Carnegie Gallery, the floral arrangements, created by participating area florists, will be paired with artwork from local artists. At Dundas Museum & Archives, precious artifacts from the museum’s collection will provide the inspiration for the accompanying floral arrangements.
Opening receptions get underway on Thursday, January 28th from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at all three exhibit locations. The exhibits will be open on Friday, January 29th from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m., Saturday, January 30th from 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and Sunday, January 31st from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m.
Raffle tickets will be available at each exhibit location for $10 which gives visitors a chance to win one of the floral arrangements at each site.
