Vivian Aho shows work at MacNaught History Centre and Archives

Summerside artist Vivian Aho is revealing a few of her favourite things with her new art exhibit at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives.

Her exhibition, “A Few Favourite Things”, is part of Culture Summerside’s ongoing Sixty Days of Fame Series.

Through the ongoing series, a local artist is featured for 60 days in the exhibit space of the history centre and archives.

Life experiences and imagination are the sources of Aho’s creative works. She likes her images to tell or hint at a story.

For her current exhibit, she categorized a few of her favourite things into four themes that have influenced her life - Friends and Family, wildflowers and scenes of the Summerside boardwalk, Island scenes and her lifelong passion for history.

The fibre work in the show tells the story of traditional net fishing from canoes in Hawaii. Aho first trained as a fibre artist before exploring painting.

Aho invites the public to view “A Few Favourite Things” and draw from it their own inspiration.

The exhibit runs through February and March and can be viewed Tuesday through Saturday at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives, 75 Spring St., Summerside.
