May is always an important time in Sackville, when Mount Allison University celebrates its convocation and class reunions. It is also when the local community hosts the Bordertown Arts Festival.
Our Town and Gown is a mixed media exhibition that represents the creativity of both worlds. Original artworks by Mount Allison alumni, staff and faculty, as well as practising visual artists from Sackville, will be presented side by side.
This year sculptor Dawn MacNutt celebrates her 60 year Mount Allison reunion. To honour this celebration we have put together a feature exhibit of nine recently created small woven wirecloth pieces. Welcome back Dawn.
During Bordertown Festival (Saturday May 6) our hours will be extended to 10 am - 5 pm.
During Convocation/Reunion weekend we will also have extended hours. The gallery will be open on Friday (May 12), Saturday (May 13) and Monday (May 15) from 10 am - 5 pm with Sunday (May 14) from Noon - 2 pm.
This exhibition continues until May 27, 2017.
