Robin Morey (1924-2016)
A Celebration of Life and Art
Saturday, April 29 at 2:00pm-5:00pm
Robin Morey spent the majority of her life in and around Essex County. Born in Detroit, she moved to Canada in 1960 and to Colchester in 1968. She led a colourful and unconventional life, becoming a prominent local artist in the Windsor area. Her works have been featured in various quilting books and magazines, and her artwork can also be viewed on display in Windsor. This includes the triptych found in the University of Windsor's Law Faculty Moot Court, as well as the large circular piece called Athena, prominently displayed in the main stairwell of Mackenzie Hall.
Please join us on April 29 at Mackenzie Hall for a celebration of her artwork and memorial of her life. We look forward to seeing you and sharing memories of Robin's amazing life.
