Please join us for playthings, a solo exhibition from emerging artist and curator Cassia Powell 🪡
August 26 - September 4, 2022
1190 Queen St. W., 2nd floor
The exhibition features an array of mixed-media installation-based pieces, often using a combination of oil painting, soft-sculpture, and both hand-sewn and machine-stitched elements. Each piece of fabric used in “playthings” is sourced from found or given materials, such as: Their grandmother’s quilt, velvet and silk scraps from their parents’ wedding, shirts given from friends, trimmings from a discarded baby blanket, and a mixture of found blankets, sheets, pillowcases and embroidery thread.
Opening reception: August 26th, 6 - 10pm
Gallery open 12 - 7pm
