Welcome Sign at Art Labs Parrsboro NS
Yesterday the exhibition of my eight quilts and eight textile wall art pieces opened at the Art Lab Studios and Gallery in Parrsboro NS. I have no wall space at home to hang these art quilts so it’s wonderful being able to see eight of them hanging in one location.
The opening yesterday afternoon was great fun – quite a few people were there and it was very interesting to observe visitors’ reactions, discovering the detail that goes into making one of these functional art works. You’ve seen each of these pieces while I was constructing it; I’ve written about each as I worked on it. Here is my production for the past year since I had a showing late August 2016.
Now to start on a new body of projects for a showing next year!
Asian Fabric Quilts
Grey/Yellow Quilt and Silk Quilt
Three Wall Art Pieces
Framed Wall Art Pieces
Waiting For Wind
Two Blue Quilts
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.
