Our staff has been busy preparing for Daring Deco: 1920s Women’s Fashion, opening to the public on June 24th. On June 25th, join us for the Opening Reception. With the arrival of fashion items from the Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery, Curator Trisha Carleton and summer staff Adrienne Dewsberry and Charlotte Le Gallais have put together mounts and prepped dresses for display. The process requires a delicate touch and concentration to ensure a good fit onto the mount and to protect the artifact from any wear or damage.
