Note: Although this is not a Huronia Museum event, we wanted to showcase this exhibition in support of the artists of Huronia, and because it features work by our very own collections manager Genevieve Carter. Way to go, Genevieve!

Uncommon Threads: Recent Works from the Huronia Handweavers
August 31 to October30
For the past 33 years, the Huronia Handweavers have pursued the hallmarks of their guild throughout history: the goals of education, creative development, and public awareness of their craft. Members range in experience from novice to master weaver status, and come from all parts of Simcoe County. This is their first show at OMAH, and it showcases a broad range of talent and inspiration from this talented group.
Included in the show are intricate hand-woven scarves, table runners, clothing, blankets, wall hangings and much more. We invite you to see for yourself these beautiful locally handcrafted works of art. A truly inspired collection! The opening reception will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Thursday September 9.
For more information please contact the museum at 705 326 2159. We are open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Also, please visit Huronia Handweavers.
