Diane Duncan

Exploring fibre work in many forms since childhood, Diane Duncan’s love of the media flowed into her choice of teaching, as an early career during which she taught in both Art and Home Economics classrooms.  Later, while home with her children, she furthered her studies in art and fibre through courses in natural dying, weaving, spinning, tailoring, quilting, needlework and oil painting.

Diane’s work often reflects interests developed while completing an Honours degree in Canadian Studies in 1985.   In a second career, she assumed the role of Coordinator for the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, Almonte, ON during its launch.

 A return to art and fibre studies in the early 1990’s included courses in watercolour and acrylics with local artists and, in fibre, with international fibre artists and resulted in a successful introduction to exhibitions.  Her work has been exhibited internationally and can be found in collections across Canada and in the USA.

 From 2009 to 2012, Diane traveled throughout North America, collecting photographs and creating ‘occasionally’, from her motor-home. Diane Duncan lives and works in Calgary AB. Current media includes textiles and fibre, mixed media, assemblage, watercolour and acrylic with some ventures into the creation of books and journals.

Linda Hawke

 Linda earned a Bachelor’s degree in fine art and art education at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and applied it in museums and galleries where, for close to two decades, she produced cultural programs for diverse audiences. Concurrently, she maintained a fibre-based artistic practice. Now a freelance artist, writer, and art educator, Linda is also the founding chair of This is My City Art Society (TMC), a volunteer organization that engages homeless and at-risk populations in positive acts of creative expression. As an artist-mentor for TMC, Linda was an artist-in-residence at the Women’s Centre as part of Calgary’s cultural capital initiative in 2012.

Linda teaches art for children and teachers through the Arts Commons (formerly the Epcor Centre for the Performing Arts) and has acted as art curator, juror and project manager for a variety of local arts initiatives.  She also writes about art and penned Celebration of the Bow River 2010, a catalogue exploring six temporary art projects organized by the City of Calgary’s Public Art Program. Her interests in the written word and community projects are reflected in her richly layered, textile-based mixed media artwork, which crosses conventional boundaries to integrate art and craft sensibilities. Her work has been featured in exhibitions in Alberta and Ontario including a three-person show at the Art Gallery of St. Albert in 2012.
