Helene ‘s masterful folk art inspired Fibre art work , ” Calgary Days” , is a series based on her stay in Alberta where she worked as a gardener. Beads, stitches, and a riot of colour reflect her life . Both artists’ love of all things textile will shine through in this special exhibit.
Anne’s exhibit, ” Worldly Influences” will be quilted pieces inspired by images, fabrics, and iconic patterns from around the world.
As accessible to our world increases by easy of travel and communication influences creep in from all corners of the globe. Migration and trade bring us textiles and designs that were once exotic and have now become accepted major influences to fashion and home decor. When we see them our minds still travel to the places of their origins as the designs suggest their heritage. My needle and thread take me there in spirit and have become my method of “arm chair travel”.
