Plan a summer road trip to Halifax's Mary E Black Gallery!

You are cordially invited to join Penny Berens and Judy Martin for the opening of their show, Cloth of Time, at 6pm on Thursday July 12, 2018.

Both Penny and Judith are award-winning textile artists whose works have been shown across Canada and internationally.

Judith Martin lives and works on Manitoulin Island, Ontario. She creates large-scale, hand-stitched artwork from found and re-purposed cloth. Judy Martin maintains a popular blog, Judy’s Journal. You can read about Judy in her World of Threads interview.

Penny Berens lives in Granville Ferry NS. Nestled in the woods between the shores of the Bay of Fundy and the Annapolis Basin, Penny works by hand with needle and thread on cloth she has dyed naturally from local flora. Her inspiration comes from daily observations of simple marks, shapes or patterns found in her surroundings. Penny Berens' work can be seen on her blog Tanglewood Threads. You can read about Penny in a SAQA Atlantic interview, Marking Time and Tides in Stitch.

The Mary E Black Gallery is Nova Scotia’s only public gallery with a fine craft mandate. The Gallery hosts local, regional, national and international fine craft exhibitions year round.

1061 Marginal Road, Halifax NS.
