The Cross Cut: Traditional Ontario Folk Songs Revisited Exhibit will be on display at the Peterborough County Agricultural Building. CBC’s Edith Fowke collected folk songs in rural Ontario during the 1950s—many in Peterborough County. Traditional music came to Ontario with European settlers. Lyrics and tunes were adapted to local experiences and the personal preferences of the players, and these offer a reflection of society at different moments in history.
POSE is a skill-building exhibition, designed to contextualize the nude portraits and sketches from the Art Gallery of Northumberland’s Permanent Collection within the wider history of the genre. The featured nine works range from expressive and gestural to strategically posed and methodically executed.
The Afternoon Book Club is the place to be for great books and plenty of lively discussion. We will be meeting in the Board Room on the second floor of the library. At this meeting, we will dip our toes into science fiction and discuss To Say Nothing of the Dog by Connie Willis. Spaces are limited and registration is required.
