Current Exhibits - 1000 Words III

Feb 29, 2024 - Apr 10, 2024

We're told a picture is worth a thousand words. What happens when you combine words and images? Our very popular 1000 Words Exhibit is back.

Visual Artists have submitted works that tell a story. Now it is up to our Authors to write a story or poem inspired by one of the works in 200 words or less. Both writing and visual arts will be on display together in store at FortyOne and online.


Writing - Email Suu Taylor at with your first and second choice art options. All art will be assigned to authors on a first come basis.

Writing Submission - February 20, 2024
Visual Art Delivery to FortyOne: before 4pm on February 27 or 28

Please join us for an opening reception on March 8 from 6 pm - 8 pm. Meet the artists and help us celebrate this exhibit as well as recognition of our Ontario Trillium Foundation Resilient Communities Grant. We hope to see you there!
