Art Exhibition: Black History Month – Denise Brown
February 25 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 28, 2021
to Feb 28th. in the Board Room – ‘The Fabric of Freedom’. During the time of the Underground Railroad, certain Freedom quilt blocks were said to be employed to communicate directional and safe passage information to fugitive slaves who were seeking freedom in Canada. Denise Brown’s Fabric of Freedom collection includes 19 square watercolour images to honour the quiet revolution that was the Underground Railroad. Propelled by many, it was made famous by Harriet Tubman who made 19 trips to and from the deep south, guiding some 300 captives on the six week journey north to St. Catherines, Ontario.
