The first of Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre’s fall exhibits, ‘This Must Be the Place’, by Ontario artist Heather Lynne Travis is set to open on Saturday, September 16th from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Travis’s work has been featured at the TOM Thomson Art Gallery, LOFT Gallery, and others.

In this collection of over 30 pieces, she uses bold colours, big scale and creative storytelling to invite new conversations around childless heroes – including pop culture icons like Dolly Parton, Ina Garten, Missy Elliott, and others – and to facilitate positive discourse on a sometimes-taboo topic.

Drawing inspiration from her own life and desire to write new fairytale endings, Heather’s work reframes patriarchal definitions of “family” by celebrating the diverse stories of women without children and infertility, while creating a happy place for positive new narratives to thrive.

The Exhibit opening reception on September 16th begins at 2:30 p.m. with with opening remarks and features light refreshments and a cash bar.

The reception is FREE to attend but RSVPs are encouraged.

For this exhibition, the Museum gratefully acknowledges the support of the Canada Council for the Arts
