The Lyme Dis-Ease Series by Susan Jaenen-Griffin

April 8-April 8, 2017

Location

St. Albans Parish Hall
701 Ellice Street
Moosomin, SK

Hours

11-5

Admission

No charge

Details

This art show will feature over 40 fibre pieces that depict the artist’s journey with Lyme Disease. The exhibit is to bring awareness to the role that art plays in the healing process of illness. Prior to being incapicated with Lyme Disease Susan Jaenen-Griffin had enjoyed quilting and had the honour of having five of her quilts juried into International Quilt Festivals but the effects of Lyme on her body made it impossible for her to quilt. She needed to relearn many everyday functions before she could begin to focus on relearning all the quilting techniques. She credits her desire to get back to her art with giving her the determination to survive the effects of Lyme. She began by making 26 small quilts. The inspiration for the quilts in that series came from her being asked several times what she had used to treat the Lyme. Her response was “Everything from Arsenic to Zince and Acupuncture to Yoga.” Other art quilts and pieces followed as her recovery continues. There is no charge for this event as the intent is to illustrate the value of creating art in the healing process and to bring awareness to Lyme Disease.

This year, 2017, we celebrate the craft of quilting with a Sesquicentennial Quilt Show and Sale. We are combining our Quilt Shows of the past with our Quilt Sales held more recently, and adding lots of Sesquicentennial flavour. The Sanctuary at Westmount will come alive with a huge display of quilts, artfully showcased on the church pews. The large stage area will feature quilts made to honour Canada’s 150th birthday, as well as art created in other mediums for this celebration. Our library area will reflect Orillia’s history since Orillia as a city shares this special birthday with Canada. As we are looking back at our past, the lounge will be arrayed in vintage and antique quilts, portraying the beauty of quilts made by our ancestors. Downstairs, there will be a very large sale of quilts, quilted and sewn items – some of them made specifically to reflect this 150th birthday. Displays will be enhanced by items of Canadiana portraying things pertinent to Canada – our history, our animals, our tartan, our flag, our Centennial year , and things uniquely Canadian. There will be over 300 quilts available for your viewing pleasure (some of them for sale). This is a Quilt Show not to be missed, and we invite you to join us in our Sesquicentennial celebration of the handmade quilt.
Come and be amazed at the variety of quilts, and the quilting talents of today’s quilters, and those from our past.
