This summer marks 50 years since a revolutionary year of art, music, and transformative events. 1967 saw the world’s first large scale outdoor rock music festival with the Monterey Pop Festival, Muhammed Ali stripped of his heavyweight title for refusing induction into the US Army, the first-ever issue of Rolling Stone magazine, Montreal’s Expo ’67, and the release of a phenomenal number of albums which remain influential and inspirational today, including
Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, The Beatles
The Doors , The Doors (debut album)
Surrealistic Pillow, Jefferson Airplane
Hello, I’m Dolly, Dolly Parton (debut album)
The Velvet Underground & Nico, The Velvet Underground & Nico (debut album)
Are You Experienced, The Jimi Hendrix Experience (debut album)
David Bowie, Davie Bowie (debut album)
The Piper At The Gates of Dawn, Pink Floyd (debut album)
and so many more.
For this show, artists are invited to create work inspired by the many musicians, artists, and cultural events and figures that made this year such a memorable time in history.
The Textile Artists Collective (TAC) is an independent self- guided study group of Nova Scotian artists whose chosen medium is fiber/fabric with a focus on surface design. This creative exploration includes: painting, dyeing, printing/stamping, stenciling, applying resists, stitching, embellishing (e.g. adding beads or small objects), quilting, weaving, knitting, felting, and papermaking, collaging, & appliqué.
