An art exhibit called ‘Nature’s Clothesline’ is set to open Oct. 29 at the Museum of Surrey.

The exhibit is described in a news release as “exciting and creative” and aims to tell the story of “clothing consumption and the dramatic increase in textile waste worldwide.”

“Nature’s Clothesline introduces the idea of sustainable textiles through upcycled art, textile creations and objects about sustainability,” the release continues.

The display features the work of six different textile artists – Roxanne Charles, Sola Fiedler, Barbara Heller, Sharon Kallis, Ruth Scheuing and Amy Walker – while work from members of the Peace Arch Weavers Society as well as items from Native Shoes and Trans-Continental Textiles will be featured.

“This exhibit ties together a group of incredibly talented textile artists with ideas that offer awareness, insight, and celebration,” said Museum of Surrey Manager Lynn Saffery.

“All are connected by the theme of nature and invite us to Re-think, Re-create, Respond, Recycle and Rejoice.”

Nature’s Clothesline runs until Feb. 21. Free, pre-registered one-hour, self-guided tours are available, Wednesdays through Saturdays. Register by calling 604-592-6956.

The Museum of Surrey is located at 17710 56A Ave.
