“How Sweet it Was: Good Sweets Candy Store, 1934 – 1968” and “Wall of Art: Sweet”

Celebrate the launch of Guelph Museums’ sweet new winter exhibitions with free admission and a free concert. Celtic musicians Fiona McCairley and Bob MacLean are set to play to mark the opening of “How Sweet It Was: Goody Sweets Candy Store, 1934-1968” and “Wall of Art: Sweet” at 7 and 8pm.
McCairley is an award-winning fiddler, a clarinetist with the Guelph Symphony Orchestra, and the co-founder and music director of the Guelph Celtic Orchestra. MacLean is a virtuoso guitarist, with expertise in a variety of styles. He was McDougall Cottage Artist In Residence for 2012 and is the founder and director of the Waterloo-Wellington Guitar Summit. As a duo, they play “straight up fiddle tunes, swingy arrangements, familiar hits and some surprises.”
“How Sweet It Was: Goody Sweets Candy Store, 1934 to 1968” looks at a beloved mid-century Guelph candy store, Goody Sweets, recounting the store’s colourful past and exploring the traditional methods they used to make their sweets. “Wall of Art: Sweet” is a series of artworks by local artists that explore the concept of “sweet” in creative and innovative ways. The exhibits are open from 5 – 9pm.
