The Structures show has now closed at the Inverness County Centre for the Arts. It will now travel to Saint John, New Brunswick where it will be exhibited at The Arts Centre from January 15 to March 4, 2016.

Regina Marzlin, the curator, sent the following information to the artists whose work is included in Structures.

The show at the Art Centre in Inverness was a huge success, the space looked fantastic and the amount of fibre art was almost overwhelming. Penny Berens' show and Maria Doering's sculpture were the perfect complements and great displays on their own. We got fantastic feedback and people were just excited to see the artwork.

Some remarks from our guestbook:

"I stand in awe of these pieces. I am officially turned on to quilting now."

"I need to remember to shut my mouth! Amazing work. Thank you!"

"An absolutely incredible exhibit. Such talent - all of you."

"Could not have been better at MOMA or the Whitney."

We had lots of visitors from the States and from around Canada. And we had substantial sales as a result of the show's stay in Inverness. We have now 5 sold pieces in the main show, and 2 pieces  from the add on show.
