"Resurgence through fibres"
27 January to 15 February
Its that most wonderful time of year again!! And here at the Galerie, we are celebrating the beauty of winter with a little something to warm the toes!! As a collective, we appreciate the beauty of this season and have created a show to add a little sun in your home. Warm and cozy is where we lean in winter, and it is as nature intended: the days are shorter, the nights are longer, so the heart of the home and the hearth is where we gather.
Come and see what our amazing artists have created with this show that generates warm and vibrant colors. Celebrating the beauty of the season but with a twist of vibrant reds, yellows, and gold. Our group show is certain to warm the spirit.
Coming Exhibitions 2023
Galerie Old Chelsea is pleased to present the amazing textile sculptures by Lina Maria Londoño, originally from Colombia and now living in our region. Londoño makes sculptural work out of a wide range of textile fibres and has been experimenting with different techniques since the late 1990’s, specifically focusing on materials such as cotton, jute, dyed sisal, and wool. Her work is driven by ancestral methods of weaving, focusing on creating new compositions that intricately connect fibres with the natural world.
“Canada is my second home” Londoño tells us “This country welcomed me with open arms in my late forties and I have adapted to my new country by absorbing and experimenting with materials found in nature. My practice allows me to continue my journey into self-discovery, and I will always be grateful for this.”
Lina Maria Londoño’s work can be found in private collections in North and South America. Drop by and see this tactile show that very much grounds us in nature.
