News - Penny Berens (Granville Ferry, NS)

Penny Berens has a piece in a show entitled Synthesis II. It is described as a unified and yet dynamically diverse traveling exhibit that combines the work of 16 Canadian members of Studio Art Quilt Associates. It was organized by members of the Central Canada region of SAQA. The show can be seen at Ben Franklin Place in Ottawa from July 26 - August 21, 2013.

Interesting link from Susan Tilley (Lunenburg, NS)

Here's a link to a free "taster" of Workshop on the Web (WoW), which is an on-line magazine devoted to fibre art, run by Maggie Grey. As part of their current subscription drive they are offering free, limited-time access to a series of online "workshops" that seem quite interesting. You can check them out here in pdf format.

Also, anyone who subscribes now gets a free book.

I received this information from a fibre artist friend who is a long-time subscriber of WoW and am passing it along in case you are not aware of the resource.

It was a treat to meet you all last month!

Trunk Show page updated

The Trunk Show page has been updated with images of the 21 pieces in the SAQA-Atlantic trunk show. The photographs do not do justice to the complexity of the surfaces of any of the pieces. The trunk show format allows viewers to handle each work of art and to carefully examine and appreciate the artists' intent and skill.

Contact the Nova Scotia or New Brunswick coordinator to bring the trunk show to your community.
