SUMMERSIDE, P.E.I. – Summerside artist Vivian Aho is revealing a few of her favourite things with the installation of 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.

Life experiences and the power of imagination have been the sources of Aho’s creative work as her images tell stories.

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 from the Summerside Boardwalk, Island scenes, and history.

Aho says the boardwalk is the best thing about living in Summerside. Almost every day she finds herself at the boardwalk taking in the sights.

Through the fibre work in the exhibit at MacNaught, Aho tells the story of traditional net fishing from canoes in Hawaii.

She invites the public to view “A Few Favourite Things” and draw inspiration from it. The exhibit runs through February and March and can be seen Tuesday through Saturday at the MacNaught History Centre and Archives at 75 Spring St. in Summerside.
