A celebration of local artists in this Arts Designated Village
WHEN: July 28 – September 17, 2023
Warkworth – Thurs., July 27, 2023 – Over the years, Warkworth has attracted a rich and expansive community of artists and artisans and has been recognized by the Municipality of Trent Hills as a Designated Arts Community. The honour of this designation was given to the village in 2005, recognized by council member Dean Peters.
“Making Warkworth” represents a retrospective collection of works, celebrating the skill and creativity within this unique community. The pieces in this exhibition – spanning photography, textile, painting, new media and more – reflect the environment they were created in, establishing a profound sense of place.
“Our hope is this will be the first in a series of annual exhibitions, which will continue to showcase extraordinary constellations of makers within Warkworth’s vibrant arts scene”. Co-curators Cydney Langill & Roberto Chiotti
