The Textile Artists CollectiveThe Textile Artists Collective is a small group of independent Nova Scotia artists working with textiles and other fibres. The art quilt, or quilted wall hanging, is our main focus, but we each push our own individual styles and vocabularies to achieve the goals of all artists: self-expression and the creation of visually stimulating and meaningful works of art.
During our monthly meetings, we share inspiration, techniques and information related to our work. We also discuss art concepts and the business of art, exploring opportunities to exhibit our work individually and as a group.
Our creative explorations include a wide variety of surface design techniques such as painting, dyeing, printing, stitching, quilting, weaving, felting, collage, appliqué, stencil, applying resists and embellishing with beads or small objects.
Please plan to visit our show between June 22nd and July 5th.
Cathy Drummond, Heather Loney, Susan Lilley, Kate Madeloso, Regina Marzlin, Fiona Oxford, Deb Plestid.
Also participating: Dawna deAdder, Karen Henry, Debbie Vermuelen.
