Exhibition Space

You may think a church is not always the best place to hang an art exhibit. I was afraid some of the Canadian artists participating in Tradition in Transition would think that.

But in fact the visitors to the Carrefour, and this year there were about 22,000, are oblivious to the setting.

They are really looking at the art work and walk by the religious symbols.

There were 10 churches, including rectories, hosting exhibits this year at the 18th Carrefour Européen du Patchwork.

South African textile artist, Paul Schutte also exhibited in a church; Eglise Ste. Rosalie in Rombach-le-Franc near Ste-Marie-aux-Mines.

This summer, I passed by an art exhibit in Arles, France, again in a church. It is a building owned by the city and there are many exhibits there throughout the year.
