I was very pleased to learn that I had been chosen for a Fredericton Arts Alliance 1 week residency in the Casemates at the Garrison District in downtown Fredericton New Brunswick. My week will be July 2-8 with the Casemates being open 10 am to 5 pm daily. The theme for this year’s residencies is the Saint John river. Beginning with my own photograph I will make the drawing, transfer it to fabric, paint the fabric and then stitch using my sewing machine and free motion embroidery to add texture and dimension to betray this National Historic site which means ” good and beautiful ” river. I hope many will visit during the week to see the progress.
I was very pleased to hear that both my entries Transitions I and Transitions II have been accepted into the SAQA Atlantic show Transitions. The exhibition opens March 28, 2018 at the Craig Gallery in Dartmouth Nova Scotia Canada and will travel to Yarmouth Art Gallery Aug 2- Sept.28, 2018, Inverness Centre for Arts Oct 5- Oct 30, 2018 and Saint John Art Centre Jan 11-March 9, 2019.
