Exciting things happening that are making me feel happy and thankful.
Celebrating visual art of the human form / Célébrer l’art visuel de la forme humaine
I’m excited to be going to Ottawa for the opening of this exhibit on November 20. My wood and wool sculpture, Esprit Des aulniers, is one of 35 finalists for this prestigious international art prize. Looking forward to meeting the artists and seeing the works.
A STITCH IN TIME
a 21st century look at textile and fabric art that challenges old traditions
The Meeting was named as one of the finalists in the international on-line juried art competition in ArtSceneToday.org . Juror: Carol Naylor, an internationally renowned textile artist, curator and teacher who resides in the UK. I am so pleased to be in the company of so many creative and inspiring fibre artists.
FIBER ART NOW
EMERGING ARTISTS SHOWCASE
My cheerful Rose Alba got me selected for listing in the international Emerging Artists Showcase and will be appearing in the 2017 spring issue of FIBER ART NOW magazine. The final selection of works was curated by Marcia Young, editor-in-chief of Fiber Art Now.
It is certainly an honour to be shown in a premier international magazine for contemporary fiber art & textiles.
FELT::FEUTRE CANADA 2016 CANADIAN CONTEMPORARY FELT EXHIBITION
Rose Alba and Sortons des bois had a road trip out to the Okanagan in September. They were juried in to this beautiful exhibition at the felt::feutre Canada symposium. What a treat for this nice couple! The felt::feutre community is brought together by a dedicated, professional group of people who aim to ‘unite, inform and inspire Canadian felt makers while building a national identity around feltmaking and increase the profile of Canadian felt makers around the world’. So thankful for their good work.
