The AHA show has been lots of fun, with more than thirty artists working in paint, collage and photography showing their work. Visitors are intrigued by work in fibre, and I like to think I am broadening the local market for fibre art. Above is a photo of me with some of my Cityscapes pieces. You'll also notice a little card with a red dot, indicating that "Steps: The Plateau" was sold. Later, "Street Life: Quebec City" also sold.
Here is Michele Meredith, a fellow member of Out of the Box, 12 by the dozen, and text'art, in front of a panel with seven of her recent collages. She sold the framed piece, top centre, a beautiful depiction of skaters in the moonlight.
We were both happy to meet Marthe Villeneuve, who also works in fibre. Her work is shown above. She uses Paverpol to sculpt fabric into three dimensions, then stitches it to canvas and applies paint to complete the image. Marthe has training in fashion design and also works in pastel. She can be reached by e-mail at marthevilleneuveATsympatico.ca.
