The latest exhibit opening Wednesday night at the Timmins Museum: National Exhibition Centre is all local.
Director-curator Karen Bachmann says “Honouring Our Past” is comprised of work by members of the Porcupine Art Club, celebrating more than 70 years as a group.
“It was part of what they wanted to do to showcase their current artists, but some of the people who were members of the club in the past,” she tells My Timmins Now Dot Com.
The highlight is a mural created on July 1st, at the club’s royal tea party in honour of Queen Elizabeth’s platinum jubilee.
“The mural is made up of 70 canvases that were done by people in the community – not professional artists – but people who wanted to participate in that,” Bachmann points out.
A four-year-old is responsible for one of the squares.
The mural and several other paintings are at the museum until the end of December.
