SAQA’s Colour with a “U” @ Homer Watson House & Gallery (closed on Mondays)
Jul 7 – Sep 7 all-day

Recommendation: Call to make an appointment to visit

Colour with a “U” is a juried exhibition of thirty-five art quilts by Canadian members of Studio Art Quilt Associates. In Canada, we spell colour with a “U”. We care about the “U”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. Thirty-five artists have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical, and physical landscape. Nothing can match experiencing the rich textures, colours, shapes, and messages in person.
