thr3fold unfinished business opened on Sunday!
The weather was perfect (never a sure thing on the West Coast in June) , just hot enough to feel summer right around the corner but with a nice cool breeze off the water. Yvonne and Reg at FibreWorks had fresh from the garden flowers, wine and goodies all laid out for the event. Many thanks to those of you that came to celebrate with us. The time just flew by, I never seemed to stop “meeting and greeting” the whole time.
I did my best but it always seems to happen that once the actual event starts I’m too busy talking to take a single picture! and it was the same this time. I took these pictures before the guests arrived…if anyone out there has images of the opening I would love to see them.
The yurts are an amazing place to exhibit there is something magical about the round shape. As you walk into the gallery yurt this is the first view…it was lovely to see my “fish ladder” quilt hanging in the center of the room. The quilt is made using cotton organdy and moved so nicely in the breeze.
Laura’s Rare Beauty looks stunning on the black walls of the yurt.
Linda and Laura’s work looks wonderful!
These are the river pieces I gave you a peek of in my last post, I’m pleased with how they turned out and think there might be more to explore at the river.
The gallery cards are a bit different for this show. Each of the cards tells the back story around each piece and shows the cover of the thr3fold journal issue that inspired it. Yvonne has placed her own collection of all 5 journals in the gallery so visitors can refer back and see the original article that inspired each piece.
I have always wanted to challenge myself and draw directly to fabric during a limited time pose and finally gathered the courage to do it, this is Caitlin . I admit to a little fiddling with the drawing once I got her back to the studio and of course the stenciling and quilting!
It was all a bit of a blur getting ready but I did manage to spiffy up a bit before the guests arrived.
unfinished business is on until the 13th of July and if you need any extra tempting, the Sunshine Coast is a wonderful get away destination.
Bye for now, Catherine
