I’m off on a few art escapades this month...
from August 16-August 31, I’ll be an artist-in-residence at la Trienniel des arts textiles en Outaouais, hosted by the Moonrain Textile Centre. I’m partnered up with the prolific and incredible Susan Taber Avila, a textile artist and professor at University Davis, CA. Together, we will be conjuring a textile installation, in-situ, along with 12 other international textile artist teams, on the land in the beautiful Val-des-monts, QC. There will be a vernissage for the trienniel on August 31 from 3:00pm-7:00pm. Throughout September, there is an assortment of workshops and presentation as well as textile exhibitions throughout the Outaouais region.
I’ll be taking a brief leave from the residency on August 22-24 to travel to Edmonton, Alberta. An edited version Ligaments and Ligatures will be exhibited Harcourt House Gallery Front Room from August 22 to September 6. I will present an artist talk at 6:00pm August 22 followed by an opening for the exhibition from 7:00pm-9:00pm.
There’s still a few spots open for the beginner sewing class that I’m teaching on the evening on August 15 at EcoEquitable...if you’ve ever wanted to learn how to sew with a sewing machine, and make a beautiful basic bag, please join! It will be sure to a great learning experience to discover the power of sewing! See prior blog post about it Here, and contact EcoEquitbale to register.
