In Ancient times, providing for the needs of the dead into the after life often exhibited the best work of artist and craftsman. Much of what we know about these lost cultures comes from clues found in graves. Into the early years of Canada's history, people continued their own distinctive and often elaborate traditions around burials and mourning. How future ages may view our current era is sure to be coloured partially by what objects we use to mark our own passing.

Be it whimsical or serious, conceptual or traditional - GRAVE GOODS seeks to explore how the current generation of artisans view all aspects of burial customs. Original objects in all mediums have been created. Artists were juried based on past works to encourage the creation of new pieces specifically for this exhibit.

This virtual exhibition does not include every single piece in the exhibition. Pieces were chosen largely on the quality of the pictures we had, but it represents a good overview of the show. If you live near Woodstock Ontario, please do consider dropping by for a look. The museum is beautiful - and well worth the visit.

.This virtual exhibition does not include all of the pieces from the "Grave Goods" exhibition - we hope that you will go to Woodstock to see the rest. Pieces have been chosen somewhat randomly based on the quality of the images available.
