Located at the entrance to the UNESCO World Heritage Site on Lincoln Street in the heart of picturesque Lunenburg, the Laurie Swim Gallery showcases Laurie’s work in a beautiful setting. The Gallery shows some of Laurie’s original quilted artwork, her prints, her cards and her books.
This year, for the first time, the gallery is representing the work of two other award-winning artists -- Hangama Amiri, painter, and Chippie Kennedy, sculptor. The addition of these fine artists inspired the show, Stitch, Paint, Sculpt: Three Artists, Three Media, and boasted an opening reception that attracted a large number of visitors. Please visit our CATALOGUES page to view more of all the artists' work.
Visitors reviewing their experience on TripAdvisor have described the gallery as follows:
"This might have been our favourite stop in Lunenburg. Laurie Swim is just an amazing artist, hard to believe she can create what she does with fabric and thread.”
"These quilts are extraordinary works of art and like no other quilts I had ever seen. These works by Laurie Swim are exuberant works of art. ...This is a top attraction in Lunenburg.”
"You don't have to be a quilter to love this gallery — just someone who appreciates the skill and artistic talent involved in making the work on display here. Every piece is a feast for the eyes, and definitely a huge advance over traditional quilting. Laurie Swim makes many terrific choices when she composes a piece — everything from colour and composition to the choice of fabrics and stitches, when to hand-paint a piece or the whole thing, etc. I was blown away!”
