Join us as we embrace the quiet beauty of winter at Platform Exhibitions' latest endeavor, "In A Distant Memory" - a group art exhibition  at Abbotsford Convent on the 29th of June.

The theme "In a Distant Memory" beckons you to journey through the nuanced layers of time, memory, and longing, inviting you to immerse yourself in a rich tapestry of human experience.

We invite you to embark on this journey of discovery, to lose yourself in the beauty of remembrance, and to find solace in the shared experience of longing.
