“A Banquet… of Sorts!” by Eileen Findlay

The Kootenay Gallery is pleased to announce that the gallery has been chosen to host the opening show for the tour of this year’s Grand National Delights Quilt and Fibre Arts Show. The exhibit will take place from June 8 to July 28.
The Exhibition Statement from the Grand National website states: “ Every one of us has pleasures in our lives. What delights you? What makes you happy, joyous and cheerful? What lifts your heart? We asked the fibre artists of Canada to share their ‘Delights’ with us.
This juried exhibition will consist of the works of 37 Canadian professional fibre artists from across Canada, each expressing a particular delight that has great meaning to them, resulting in a diverse range of materials, techniques, ideas, concepts, and cheerful thoughts to get us all back on the path to living, having fun and enjoying the pleasures of life once again.”
The gallery will offer two quilting workshops during the show dates. The first workshop will be held on June 15th from 10 am to 1 pm, with Sara Judith. This half-day workshop, entitled “Meditation in Stitch”, will explore mark making in stitch. The second workshop will take place on July 14 from 9 am to 4 pm, and will be taught by Bernadette Yuzik. Participants will create a collaged art fabric design of a moth. Please visit our website for more details regarding these workshops at www.kootenaygallery.com and visit the Upcoming Events tab for more information and registration details. Gallery hours are from 10am to 5pm, Tuesday through Saturday. For more information contact the Gallery at 250.365.3337 or email kootenaygallery@telus.net
