Let’s Dance! June Weaving Exhibition

An exuberant exhibition of weaving at MERA for the month of June
Meet the artists June 5

As an antidote to the grimness of COVID, the 10 weavers of Weavers Unlimited have created work(s) on the theme of dance. Because each member of the group has a unique area of expertise and esthetic vision, the individual pieces in the exhibition are diverse both technically and visually. The result is a lively exuberant, colorful celebration of movement expressed in a woven format.

The “Let’s Dance” exhibition runs from June 1 to June 30 at the MERA Schoolhouse in McDonalds Corners. Everyone is invited to meet the artists and view their works on Sunday, June 5 from 2 to 5. Light refreshments will be served and woven articles will be available for sale. The exhibit can also be viewed on Thursdays from 10 to 2 when the MERA weavers will be working in the weaving studio and on Saturdays from 10 to 2 when the farmers market is also open.

Weavers Unlimited has met regularly since 2003. Members are fascinated by the weaving process and committed to learning, researching and experimenting in the design and production of woven items.  Current members live in Petawawa, Kanata, Nepean, Ottawa, Ompah, Perth, and Fergus ON.
