Exhibit To Highlight Bermuda’s ‘History In Hats’

March 17, 2015

Artists Donna Pink and Ronnie Chameau are getting set to present ‘Our History in Hats,’ an exhibit that shows off the many styles of head wear that have been popular in Bermuda over the past three centuries. The exhibit was previously featured at the Bermuda Society of Arts in June 2014.

The artists have recreated hat styles that were worn by women in Bermuda from the 1700s through the 1950s, giving visitors to the exhibit a look at the fashion sense that dominated different periods in the island’s history.

With the hats created from natural materials, such as Coconut Palm Matting, woven Palmetto Palm and Banana leaves, the exhibit aims to demonstrate how simple, organic materials – normally not considered beautiful – can be used creatively.

‘Our History in Hats’ will be open at Bridge House in St. George’s from March 18 through April 30, available from 11.00am to 4.00pm Wednesday to Saturday and 12.00pm to 4.00pm on Sundays; admission is free.
