exhibition

Inspired by Canada’s 150th Anniversary in 2017, this collection of silver candleholders honours Canadian women’s creative past and inspires their future.

Fifteen renowned Canadian metalsmiths transformed donated heritage silver into unique candleholders, each piece honouring Canadian women’s involvement in a particular art.

‘Illuminations’ is a travelling exhibition produced by the Metal Collective and curated by Laura Brandon.
