Flowers of Canada: A Celebration of Canadian Unity

Watercolour paintings by Island Artist Mary Margaret Land

(Charlottetown, P.E.I.) – An exhibition of 14 watercolour paintings by Island artist Mary Margaret Land will open with a public reception on December 14 at 7 p.m. in the Boardroom of Confederation Centre of the Arts and remain on exhibition until December 22. Land created the paintings over the last decade; to mark Canada’s sesquicentennial, Land has been inspired to present the collection of paintings and prose reflections representing the floral emblem of each province and territory along with a painting entitled “Canadian Unity.”

“Each provincial and territorial flower conveys its own unique character, and together they represent the best of Canada,” says Land. “It is my hope that this exhibit will serve to inspire and re-energize Canadians as they reflect on these values we share as the community of Canada.”

Land will be attending the opening reception and will also be present at the exhibition December 15 and 17 from 1- 4 p.m. to talk to visitors about her project.

What are Relaxed Performances?

 

Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.

 

Relaxed Performances offered during the 2021 Charlottetown Festival:
