Manitoulin Fine Arts Members Show on at Sheguiandah museum

SHEGUIANDAH—One of Island art patrons’ favourite times of the year has returned after a two-year-long COVID hiatus. The Manitoulin Fine Arts Association Members Show is currently on exhibit at Centennial Museum of Sheguiandah and will run until September 25.

“I am really pleased with the number of members who have participated in the show this year,” said MFAA president Susan Cairns. “There are so many great artists on Manitoulin and it is wonderful to see their work after all this time.”

There are 20 members of the MFAA who have submitted work for this show and the media and styles they work in are highly varied. From oils to acrylic, from watercolour to mixed media and beyond, there is something to just about every patron’s taste, and best of all, if one hurries there is also the opportunity to purchase a favourite piece. Some are already sold.

If you can’t make it out to the show, then pop by The Expositor’s Facebook page to see a quick live post video of the works on exhibit, but a quick video really doesn’t do justice to the works. It’s a great opportunity to drop into the Centennial Museum of Sheguiandah to check out the MFAA Members’ Show and maybe even take a gander or two at the museum exhibits while you are at the museum.

Admission to the MFAA show is free. A nominal fee applies to entry into the museum exhibits.
