First Art Show

I’m having my first art show — Functional Art: Quilts & Garments.
At the Art Lab and Studios in Parrsboro NS (2 hours from Halifax).

I had a difficult time deciding which quilts to put into the exhibition – in the end I chose 10 showing a range of work over three years. I also included three jackets and two shirts illustrating wearable art.

Although the gallery is small there was plenty of space to showcase the quilts and garments and the room was popping with colour when we finished hanging the works, yesterday.

There’s a story behind each of the pieces. I will get to talk about that tonight when I go back for the opening. I’m looking forward to seeing reactions and hearing comments.IMG_0624

  2. I’m so excited for you! I love your quilts and can understand your “dilemma” in choosing which items to exhibit. Maybe you’ll have to return in the future with the items that didn’t make this show!
