Structures Hits Saint John

If you haven't yet had an opportunity to view Structures, a travelling fabric art exhibition, this may be your chance! The exhibition, consisting of 25 amazing art quilts by 19 Atlantic artists, will be on display in Saint John, NB, until March 4, 2016.

Where: The Frazee Gallery of the Saint John Arts Centre, 20 Peel Plaza, Saint John, NB
When: Friday, January 15 until Friday, March 4, 2016.
Opening reception: 5:30-7:30pm, Friday, January 15, 2016.

Structures launched last June at the Art Gallery of St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish NS. It has since travelled to the Gallery at the Guild in Charlottetown and the Inverness County Centre for the Arts, in Inverness NS. The final stop on the Structures exhibition tour will be at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Yarmouth Branch, March 15 to April 30, 2016.

The show has been well received at every stop on the tour, from people who were just excited to see the artwork. Here are a few of their remarks:

"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."
