Resurfacing: Mennonite Floor Patterns - Open until April 1

Since 2001, Margruite Krahn has been unearthing historical floor patterns in Mennonite housebarns, documenting historical patterns from villages all over southern Manitoba. Her research has taken her from Manitoba to Mexico to the Netherlands and back, discovering more about the patterns, the people who created them, and what they can tell us about Mennonite life in Manitoba around the turn of the twentieth century. Resurfacing: Mennonite Floor Patterns unearths this history, highlighting Margruite’s research, as well as her original artwork, which replicates these historical patterns for new audiences today.


Beauty in the Ordinary - On Now


South East Artist’s Group is pleased to present a new exhibit called “Beauty in the Ordinary.” Ten works by local artists explore the beauty inherent in the ordinary places of everyday life.  The exhibit will be opening in the Art Hall at Mennonite Heritage Village on January 18, 2023 at 7:00 p.m and will be on display until spring 2023.  The works of art on display in the exhibit will be available for purchase through each artist.
