St. Columba Anglican Church Doors Open Waterloo Region

St. Columba Anglican Church

This little church’s modest exterior belies an exceptional collection of decorative art that enlivens the space beneath the modern wood ceiling – colourful quilted banners, embroidered cushions, brilliant stained glass, wood carvings, metalwork, ink-on-paper drawings – all by Nancy Lou Patterson (b. 1929). Join an 11 a.m. talk – The gift to be simple: The religious and secular art of Nancy Lou Patterson.
