Keillor House Museum – NEWS RELEASE
Our new exhibit Small Town, Big Fashion: Fashion from Southeastern New Brunswick from 1860 – 1960 is open!
Small Town, Big Fashion will show the progression of fashion over a hundred-year period, using women’s garments from the Keillor House collection. Each garment connects to a woman from Southeastern New Brunswick and many to women from Westmorland County.
Small Town, Big Fashion was curated by Inga Hansen, who recently returned to New Brunswick from New York City, where she had been working towards a Master’s degree at the Fashion Institute of Technology. The exhibition will serve as part of her thesis to complete her graduate program Fashion and Textile Studies: History, Theory and Museum Practice.
On display on the second floor of the Keillor House Museum, 4974 Main Street Dorchester the exhibition will run to September 15, 2013, during regular museum hours of Tuesday to Saturday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm and Sunday noon to 5:00pm.
The exhibit was made possible through a grant from Canadian Heritage and support from New Brunswick Tourism, Heritage and Culture – Heritage Branch.
