Manitoulin Circle Project
The project consists of the creation of four large meditation panels, made with recycled linen damask tablecloths and hand stitching by the community under the leadership of artist, Judy Martin. The Project has been meeting since October 2009, every Thursday in the Little Current United Church hall on Manitoulin Island.
As of November 2012, 139 participants have stitched on or otherwise helped in the creation of the panels.
In September 2013, the four panels will be included in the Thunder Bay Art Gallery's exhibition entitled MENDED WORLD. The same exhibit will travel to the Art Gallery of Sudbury in January 2014, and the WP Kennedy Gallery in North Bay in October 2014. A catalogue will be published by the Thunder Bay Art Gallery with a critical essay by Elizabeth Kalbfleisch.
After the tour, the panels will be permanently installed int he Little Current United Church.
There is still time to join in. The project continues until at least June 2013.
