Artisans Waterfront and Kings Playhouse, two community arts organizations in Kings county, have collaborated to present The Merry Month of May, a group exhibition at the Playhouse Gallery in Georgetown. The show runs to May 28.

The Merry Month of May features painting, photography, quilting and rug hooking from 12 members of Artisans Waterfront in Montague. The participating artists hope to surprise visitors with the feelings that the happy month of May evokes in artistic interpretation.

The centrepiece of the show, a bright quilt created by Ruth Aquilani, is surrounded by paintings created by Helene LaRouche, Claire Nantes, Chris Mollins, Sylvia Poirier, Dagny Rossignol, Donna Marie Serres, Rosemary Terris and Lorraine Vatcher.  Photography is represented by Gary Nicholl. The exhibition also includes Sue Anne Jay’s rug hooking and jewelry designed by Jim Aquilani.
