Member Exhibitions

July 6 - September 28, 2013
Hanging by a Thread

Artist Reception: Saturday, July 6 from 2-4pm with a special performance by Emily Ella Rigaux

Organized by Ilse Anysas-Salkauskas and Barbara J. West this exhibition uses textiles to explore the relationships among multiple generations of women.  Along with Ilse's fibre art and Barbara's mixed media installations, their children and grandchildren were invited to participate in the exhibition.


Dana Bush, recent ACAD graduate and practicing ecologist, has a work in Coming Up Next: An exhibition of contemporary fine craft by emerging artists, at the Alberta Craft Council in Edmonton (June 20-July 27).

Dana combines textile art and ecological ideas into three dimensional constructions. The images are carefully painted on using Rozome, a Japanese wax resist technique and natural dyes, and the ecological concepts are expressed through the construction (translucent overlays, mobiles, circular books etc.).  A Sweetness of Bees has three layers of silk organza. The bottom layer depicts the bees that we rely on for food and textile. The second layer shows the fruits and textiles we harvest because of the bees, and the upper layer shows the flowers from which they collect pollen. You can only see the individual images by carefully looking down through the layers - the three make an inseparable whole.
