JOHN COREY'S QUILTS EXHIBITION (THRU AUG 31).

New Brunswick Museum, 1 Market Square.

9:00 am-5:00 pm.  John Corey’s interest in, and promotion of, the importance of textiles was a crucial factor in the survival and flourishing of the art of quilting in southern New Brunswick. His decision to commission these quilts not only drew attention to their production but also to their significance on a broader scale. This preserved suite of quilts pays homage to the customs of quilt-making in New Brunswick and it also focuses attention on the value of the time and effort of many women who would otherwise go unrecognized. www.nbm-mnb.ca  (506) 643-2300 / 1-888-268-9595.
