this town is small presents Get Well Soon!, a new solo exhibit by local artist Donnalee Downe, on view November 12 to December 11 at Receiver Coffee in Charlottetown.

In Get Well Soon!, vintage hand embroidery is altered to juxtapose text excerpts from two collections disparate in tone and nature—a tongue in cheek rolodex of humorous things the artist has said aloud while at home alone in her Charlottetown home, and text from documents associated with two mental health diagnoses in 1998 and 2005.

“Surprisingly, the collection is hilarious and timely,” explains Downe,  adding that the show involves “vintage textile works of domesticity at a time when we are focused on what it means to be home and be well.”

Receiver Coffee is located at Richmond St, Charlottetown.
