marvellous March

…or maybe I should say manic March?

It is going to be a marvellous month but there is a touch of “mania”  as well! but it’s the very best kind of mania.

mended opens  Tuesday evening  (7 pm) at Il Museo in the Italian Cultural Center and it’s all hands on deck planning and hanging, promoting and even a bit of last-minute mending! It’s going to be a terrific show and if you are in the area I would love to see you at the opening.

On the morning of the same day as the opening I will be hanging a show at the North Vancouver City Hall Atrium. It is the most amazing space in our brand new city hall, it’s an honour to be showing there in my own community.

I’m giving an artists talk on Tuesday March 24th from 12:15 to 12:45 , hope you can make it!

And….just this morning I received an email saying my work had been accepted into this years Cherry Blossoms: A Textile Translation exhibition! The show will be at the Silk Purse Gallery in West Vancouver and opens on March 31st. The last day of marvellous manic March.

Here’s a few detail shots of my entries….with the stitching in.

Ned and I are getting out and enjoying the wonderful weather this spring, it has been really lovely here. Even Ned is impressed with the magnolias blooming all over our neighbourhood.

I had the big magnolia in the front yard pruned professionally this year- I’ve never been good at heights and it’s getting way too tall for me. I brought a few of the pruned branches inside in hopes the blossoms would open up and they did! I love the shape of these flowers, they always feel a little exotic to me.

Hope you are enjoying signs of spring wherever you are,

Bye for now, Catherine

  1. Manic is the right choice of word I would say! I would be going off my head with all that activity. Your entry into the Cherry Blossom exhibit looks wonderful, can’t wait to see it. Will be home the 14th. Let me know if I can do anything for “Mended”.

    • Thanks Maggi, it is an exciting time!it always amazes me when everything happens at the same time, next month I will be twiddling my thumbs with nothing happening.
      Hope to see you in April, Catherine

  2. What a manic March you have there! wish I could be there to see all of your exhibits, but will have to wait till October to see some of your work in person at Sorrento!
