Haliburton School of the Arts. Last night was the reception of our faculty show at Rail's End Gallery here in Haliburton.
Exhale") was one of othe first works to sell. A couple who came in from Toronto purchased it on Sunday. This is an all-media show, showcasing the work of all the instructors in the summer arts program, so a huge victory for fibre art to have a piece of fibre be one of the first pieces to sell! Now truth be told, I had kinda hoped to be able to use this piece to submit for our upcoming Canadian SAQA show, "Synthesis". Submission deadline for jurying is September 15 so I will either have to scramble to make another work or not participate in this show. We shall see how my schedule pans out. Let's not forget that I am trying to create work for my upcoming joint show with Cathy Breedyk-Law, and also planning to take some vacation a little later this month.
In the mean time, I have a great group of students in the Art Quilt this week. I will blog more about that and their works on the weekend. Today we did a day of fabric dyeing, and student Barb Shea shares the following photo of me demo'ing how to dye multi-coloured fabrics.
