Visit Creative in Residence Alisa McRonald’s community led textile punch needle art piece at the Guelph Civic Museum during Ontario Culture Days.

This exhibition will be on display for the duration of the listed dates. Registration is not required to visit the exhibition. Registration will provide updates and reminders of the event.

Program Description:

Alisa McRonald is a contemporary textile artist who experiments with themes of folklore, fables and the esoteric. For her residency, Alisa will create colourful, contemporary punch-needle wall-hangings. During the Festival, visitors are invited to visit the Guelph Civic Museum to see a punch needle art piece created collaboratively between the artist and the public. Visitors are invited to identify themes within the work.

About the Artist:

Alisa McRonald’s woven and needle-punched weirdos live in the ironic pop-culture paradise of a Queer GenX Feminist. As a contemporary textile artist, she has always straddled the line between art and craft. Alisa’s sustainable creative practice involves making her own tools and textiles through scavenging and recycling as a way to connect her current work to the past. Alisa maintains her art practice in Guelph where she is a mentor, teacher and facilitator. She has exhibited and performed both nationally and internationally, and has been featured in the publications, curatorial lists and shops of institutions like Ontario Craft Council and the Textile Museum of Canada.

This program is a part of the Creatives In Residence series by Ontario Culture Days.
Ontario Culture Days is dedicated to fostering the public’s engagement with Ontario’s arts, culture and heritage as a means of enriching our communities while supporting the vibrancy and sustainability of our sector.
