It's been a long time since I posted anything but those of you who are following along on Facebook and/or Instagram will know that I haven't been sitting idle... I've been working flat out preparing for a show, as well as a few other bits and bobs that are coming up.
So... here's the information for those things:
First and foremost, I have a show coming up at the Britannia Art Gallery in Vancouver this fall. The show will run from the 7th till 30th of October 2015 with the opening reception at 6.30pm till 8.30pm on the 7th October. Do come along if you can make it.
If you can’t make the opening but it works for you to come at a different time, the gallery is always open when the library is open so you can peruse at your leisure during those times.
I will be giving an artist talk at 7pm on October 21st too. A link to the Facebook event page is here- please do like, comment and share so more folks hear about it.
In addition to this solo show I’m thrilled to be involved in Richmond Art Gallery’s Culture Days at the end of September 2015. This year RAG have decided to celebrate bees, in all their shapes and sizes. They have bee themed exhibitions by two awesome artists, Cameron Cartiere and Jasna Guy which I am really looking forward to checking out, plus a whole weekend of free, drop-in activities on September 26th & 27th. You can check out the whole schedule of activities on the Facebook Event page or their website. I will be there on Saturday 26th from 2pm till 4.30 running a drop-in bee embroidery workshop. You will be able to get a sneaky peek at some of my bee embroideries a week before they go up for my exhibition as well! I’m looking forward to it and anticipate that it will be a really fun weekend.
Finally, the last thing I want to share with you is the dates for the East Side Culture Crawl. I will be at Vancouver Community Laboratory (probably in the textiles area, upstairs) (map here) for the second year running and will have my work on display alongside other CoLab artists. This will include new embroideries, drawings and some prints of photographs I’ve taken. Part of my intention for this show is to have some stuff for sale that is more affordable for folks that enjoy my work but can’t stretch to one of my hand sewn embroideries. I don’t quite know what that’s going to look like yet but I’m working on it and if you come down for the crawl you will hopefully find out!
The dates this year are 19th, 20th, 21st and 22nd November (5pm-10pm on Thursday and Friday, 11am till 6pm on Saturday and Sunday) and I’ll be there for the whole time. The CoLab is a great studio with incredible diversity in terms of what folks are producing- a must stop in my opinion if you’re doing the Crawl and not as busy as some of the other Vancouver studios.
For those of you further afield, please note that I update my website fairly regularly with new work so keep checking back!
