2 ARTIST TALKS WITH COMMON THREADS: A PRINTMAKER’S PORTAL EXHIBITION ARTIST CAROLYN RIDDELL!
THURSDAY JAN 12 at 2 pm | SUNDAY JAN 22 at 2:30 pm
Join us this month as we welcome artist Carolyn Riddell for two afternoons in our main gallery.
If you haven’t yet seen this beautifully layered and evocative exhibition exploring memory, relationships, and tactile material, this is an ideal way to engage with Carolyn’s lush explorations into printmaking, stitching/weaving, and assemblage.
We are excited to have Carolyn with us to lead 2 interpretative talk & walk throughs, with a causal question and answer period at the end.
This is a FREE event at the Elora Centre for the Arts. Everyone is welcome! No registration required. Light refreshments will be served.
The exhibition runs until January 22, 2023 and is is made possible through the generosity of the Ontario Arts Council.

About the Artist:
Carolyn Riddell is a painter and printmaker who muses and makes work about place and memory.
She has had studios in Europe, Asia and the Indian subcontinent. Her research and studio practice, active since 1986, is a constant unfolding towards an understanding of material, history, ritual and meaning.
Her visual explorations resound in printmaking, stitch work and assemblages using ready made materials. Prints, wallpaper, weaving, thread work and collected artifacts become Carolyn’s signatures: possibilities for recollection, affirmations of the handmade and the manifestation of personal stories.
