Art Exhibition: Three, Two, One – Create

The exhibit, “Three, Two, One – Create” is a play on words, but has a larger meaning for this show. There are three artists (Don Zeghers, Krista Zeghers and Coreen Zerr) using two artistic mediums (photography and fibre art) in one exhibit to depict the creative process. Each of the pieces in “Three, Two, One – Create” involves a collaboration between the artists.

Artist Talk – Three, Two, One – Create

We are hosting a Virtual Artist Talk in lieu of an opening reception for our Opening Show of the 2021 season. Join us on Facebook Live to talk with Coreen Zerr, Krista & Don Zeghers about their show, their process and more ..
