There are 40 works of art in this year’s travelling juried exhibit of the Northern Ontario Art Association. Only one of them is an example of fabric art.

Ansonville Art Club vice-president Robin Edmunds says the scene is crafted out of felt by Iroquois Falls artist Renelle O’Connor.

“It’s a pretty unique piece,” she comments.  “It’s the only felting piece in the whole show.”

O’Connor is expected to be at the opening of the exhibit at the Ansonville Gallery, tonight between 6:00 and 8:00.  Admission is free.

Edmunds tells My Cochrane Now Dot Com that  it’s an honour for the club to host the show.

“It’s going to stay here up till February 22nd and it’ll be back on the road, off to Kirkland Lake.”

You can check it out at the gallery – upstairs of the Lions Den – between 10:00am and 5:00pm Tuesday to Friday.  Private viewings are available on Saturdays.
