TAPESTRY, our at-home textile art program for seniors, is wrapping up with an exhibition at St. Matthew’s Clubhouse this month, and we want you to come!
March 22nd – March 26th, 2023
In-person at St. Matthew’s Clubhouse
Upstairs at 450 Broadview Avenue
TAPESTRY was an at-home art program that took place online for 20+ seniors and was all about inspiring mental wellbeing and creativity! Over the course of six months, from August 2022 to February 2023, participants learned different textile arts skills and increased their digital literacy skills, all while contributing to a series of collaborative tapestries. The textile workshops took place each month, and were led by different talented textile artists (Camila Salcedo, Sarah Aranha, Khadija Aziz, Fatima Kadkhodazadeh, denirée Isabel, Julia Lee, and Angela Walcott). Now, the program is culminating with an exhibition at St. Matthew’s Clubhouse for people to view and enjoy these phenomenal large-scale collaborative tapestries!
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:
- Dates: Wednesday March 22nd to Sunday March 26th
- Times: Wednesday and Thursday 12-5PM, Friday 12-7PM, Saturday and Sunday 10-3PM
