WAR Flowers – A Touring Art Exhibition Opens for Public

Event Date: January 24, 2018

 

The exhibit explores the story of a Canadian World War I soldier, Lt Col. Cantlie and the connections with nine other people during that time. Lt Col. Cantlie collected flowers on European battlefields and sent them in letters, pressed between the pages, to his wife and children.

“I believe people have an ability to find beauty and hope, even amidst the horrors of war. This exhibition examines human nature in wartime through a series of artistic representations, multisensory experiences and portraits of ten Canadians who were involved in the First World War.” – Viveka Melki, curator www.warflowers.ca

The exhibit runs until March 25, 2018.
