Ode to Lavallèe: Artist: Art KWilt Connections: Illene Atkins, Dorothy Holdenmeyer, Marg Notar, Judy Pearce, and Nancy Winn.

The AGB has developed a reputation for showing this art form – this year they did themselves proud. There is some very very fine work on the walls of the Michael Lee Chin gallery.

The exhibition is on until the 16th of September – admission is free. Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 9:00 pm; Saturday and Sunday 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

There is a second Artist Talks on the 15th. More information on the talk – call the AGB 905-632-7796

The event showcases 90 works by 60 artists from across Ontario, in fabric, paper, yarn, thread and mixed media materials. The goal of the Fibre Art community is to raise the profile, awareness and acceptance of Fibre Art as a true art form.

Corrosion – Artist: Mary Pal

Fibre is an art form that has come into its own – it was seen as a craft that grew into an art form that is popular with a growing audience.

It is the kind of thing you have to see and spend time looking at to fully appreciate.

Several of the pieces on display are quite stunning.

Well worth the time – allow yourself a couple of hours – you might find yourself thinking in terms of something you would want to put on your walls.
