Traditionally, this event was held in conjunction with A Handmade Assembly, an interdisciplinary community event that explored the intersections of the handmade and contemporary art. While A Handmade Assembly came to a close in 2019, the Heart & Pocket lives on as a way to highlight and support the work of local, regional and national artists.

In keeping with the spirit of A Handmade Assembly, Sackville artist Alana Morouney will present a loom weaving demonstration during the event.

Alana Morouney is an interdisciplinary artist whose diverse practice includes textiles, fibres, sculpture and performance. Alana has led workshops at the Owens as part of the MAKER MAKER series (2018) and during A Handmade Assembly (2017). At the last A Handmade Assembly, in 2019, Alana presented a durational weaving performance titled, Tell Me Something Good. She recently received the BMO 1st! Art Award for New Brunswick (2021).

Masks are mandatory and proof of vaccination is required for all vendors and attendees.

We would like to acknowledge, honour, and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians—from all four directions—of the land on which we live. It is upon the unceded, ancestral lands of the L’nuk (the Mi’kmaq) that the Owens Art Gallery and Struts Gallery are built. While this area is known as Sackville, New Brunswick, it is part of Siknikt, a district of the greater territory of Mi’kma’ki. This territory is covered by the Treaties of Peace and Friendship, whichthe  L’nuk, Wolastoqiyik, and Peskotomuhkati first signed with the British Crown in 1725.
