"Of Land and Sea" - Curated by Kaija Rautiainen
Thursday, May 4, 2017 to Sunday, June 4, 2017
This exhibition features the works of five fibre artists, who work in a variety of media and styles. Anni Hunt (textile vessels), Catherine Nicholls (textile art), Julie Pongrac (basketry), Michelle Sirois-Silver (hand hooking, appliqué) and Kaija Rautiainen (digital Jacquard weaving). The artists present works in nature based themes.
Kaija Rautiainen uses the very ancient medium of weaving combined with cutting edge technology in her images of west coast nature. She went from using a traditional tapestry technique to computer-aided weaving to realize her interest in creating works that marry image and structure.
