Fieldcote lifts Veils of Secrecy exhibit unveiled on Sept. 20

News Aug 14, 2009 Ancaster News

The public is invited to explore Fieldcote Memorial Park and Museum’s latest inspirational and innovative exhibition entitled Enduring Women: Veils of Secrecy, which runs from Sept. 20 to Jan. 31, 2010.

This powerful, traveling, interactive exhibition is a collaborative visual arts project that confronts the sensitive issue of violence against women, while also raising community awareness; according to Statistics Canada (1993), 51 per cent of all Canadian women have experienced at least one incident of sexual or physical violence.

A special opening reception for the exhibition will be held Sept. 30 from 5-8 p. m. Light refreshments will be provided and admission to the reception is free. Admission to the exhibit will also be free that evening.

In this first-time collaboration between male and female artists Gerald Pedros and Sylvia Curtis-Norcross, Enduring Women delivers a powerful body of work, and brings together the female and male perspectives while engaging the ‘voices’ of many women from the past and present.

The exhibit, which has been received with much acclaim, uses mixed media as its canvas. Its images and sounds remind us that in each community acts of violence against women do indeed exist, and that the victims, as well as the perpetrators, come from every social and economic background.

Enduring Women: Veils of Secrecy has been made possible by a collaborative of public and community agencies, and coincides with events such as the Take Back the Night march in September and Woman Abuse Prevention Month in November.

Fieldcote Memorial Park and Museum is a cultural heritage centre located at 64 Sulphur Springs Rd. in Ancaster and is open to the public Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays from 1-5 p. m.

Admission rates are $3 for adults and $2.50 for seniors 65-plus and students 13 to 17 years of age. Children six to 12 are $2, and children five and under, including infants, are free. Families are $8 (two adults and unlimited dependent children).
