Oshawa Fibre Art Show

Oshawa Fibre Art Show

Nine members of our Guild travelled to Oshawa (Wenda, Carol, Linda, Deb, Alice, Sue and Marie on November 7, 2014 and Marilyn and Tina on November 8, 2014) to attend the 12th Annual Oshawa Fibre Art Show.  The Art Show showcased 100 original works of fibre art by several Ontario artists:

Rita Benson
Cathy Brownson
Libbie Burns
Stasha Ceglarz
Frances Emery
Nancy Johnson
Maureen Kay
Karen Menzies
Martina Munroe
Heather Nelson
Joyce O’Connell
Rosemary Oliver
Jean Preston
Dale Sutton
Marilyn Whitbread
Cheryl Wray

The Centennial Albert United Church was a wonderful venue for this fibre art show.  The show was a spectacular display of works from very talented artists.  The techniques were varied and used many types of fibres: paper mache, wire, wood, embroidery, machine stitching, thread painting, silk fibres, hand dyed cottons and wools, copper and many more.  These works were so inspiring.

A visit to the Soper Creek Yarn shop in Bowmanville was part of the excursion and I believe all of us brought home a little something from that store.

It was another great day!
