"Edge of the Forest" coming to Calgary!!!!

Edge of the Forest is an exciting exhibition of textile art by 53 artists from across Canada who are members of the Surface Design Association.  This juried exhibition of textile art features weaving, felt work, quilts, printing, machine and hand stitched work and other techniques that give structure, pattern and colour to textile. The exhibition is designed to travel across Canada to provide Canadian artists an opportunity to showcase their work in local venues.  It aims to introduce the viewers to the variety and beauty of textile art, as well as to inspire other artists to explore these art forms. 

 January 11 – 30, 2016,  Fish Creek Community Library, Calgary, AB

Photos of the work in the meantime, can be seen on the official site.
