PEI Nature Inspires Craft, this year’s celebration of craft exhibit, will feature fine craft inspired by PEI’s natural history. The inspiration pieces include birds, plants, nests, fossils, bones, etc. PEI Nature Inspires Craft will showcase the wide variety of craft produced on the Island. This exhibition is mounted in partnership with the PEI Crafts Council, with the support of Innovation PEI. All are welcome to attend the official opening on June 9 at 2 pm. This exhibition will be on display until October.

Eptek Centre will also host a one-night only, The Reggio Art Exhibit featuring the work of a group of early learning students on June 18 at 6 pm.

There is no admission fee for these two opening events and refreshments will be served. The on-site gift shop carries only Island art and craft, as well as books on local themes. Be sure to visit the permanent exhibition on the history and architecture of Summerside, too. Admission is by donation.
