Opening of Exhibition Natures Thread 2018

Last night was the opening of my solo exhibition which featured thread paintings and wall quilts at the Charlotte Glencross Gallery, Charlotte St. Arts Centre Fredericton NB. The exhibition runs until Oct. 9. The Arts Cente is open 8:30 am -9 pm.

 

On radio

There will be an interview about my fibre art work and my artist in residency at the Casemates  in Fredericton NB on CHSR radio 97.9 FM at noon on July 5.  It can be heard by podcast later. 

I’m working on a thread painting of the Saint John river.

Teaching in Ontario

I will be teaching and delivering three  slide/trunk presentations for the Oxford Quilt Guild and the London Friendship Quilter’s Guild for the first two weeks in April.  Hopefully spring will have reached Ontario.

Soon after I return to NB I will be attending the SAQA retreat May 4-6 in Debert NS.

Exhibitions

My Peaceful Oasis hangs at the Grand National Juried Quilt Show at Josef Schneider Haus in Kitchener Ontario from May 7 to September 3, 2017.

Busy winter

My sewing room has not been busy this winter. We went to Antigua for 11 days in late January and early February. We were home for less then two weeks and we went to Kitchener Ontario for 5 days to celebrate the wedding of our son.  Below is a picture of my son and his bride, my  husband, daughter and myself. Then we were home for only 4 days before heading off to Nova Scotia where I was teaching and delivering a slide/trunk presentation for the Mahone Bay Quilters Guild and the Town and Country Quilt guild.

However my efforts of last year have been rewarded with my accepted entries( see previous post).

 

Juried exhibitions

On Feb. 12 I was notified that I had two pieces chosen for the Contemporary Canadian Art Quilts video and one quilt chosen for the ” real show”. This show is being held April 8-May 30 at the Kitchener City Hall Berlin Tower Artspace  Kitchener Ontario. My great white egret in my piece entitled Majestica was chosen for the video portion and my Raining Cats and Dogs was chosen for both the video portion and the real quilt portion.

I had more good news when on Feb.28 I learned that I had a piece accepted into the Canadian Quilters’ Association National Juried Show which is being held during Quilt Canada in Toronto June 14-17 and on March 7 I learned that I had a piece accepted into the Grand National Quilt Show.
