Meet Elaine

Group rug hooking exhibition at Lefurgey Cultural Centre

West End Houses by Elaine Harrison, hooked by Mary Ploughman-Jones 

Meet Elaine, a group exhibition by members of the Lady Slipper Rug Hooking Guild, will open on June 18 in the gallery of the Lefurgey Cultural Centre in Summerside.

Elaine Harrison (1915-2003) was an iconic Island artist who captured on canvas the life of the Island. The beloved teacher, poet, and painter was inspired by the works of the Group of Seven, Emily Carr and Tom Thomson.

The members of the Lady Slipper Rug Hooking Guild have reproduced many of Harrison’s paintings as hooked rugs, true to the original work. The hooked rugs will be accompanied by a number of Harrison’s original paintings on loan from private collections for the show. 

The exhibition will continue to the end of September. Admission is by donation. The Centre is located at 205 Prince Street, Summerside.
