Salt Spring’s Textile and Surface Design Group exhibits an exciting show called If once you have slept on an Island in the ArtSpring lobby during the month of August. The artists explore many aspects of textiles, art and design to express their own diversity and to push their own limits of working with fabrics. Many started with quilting and sewing but have experimented with new techniques, products and processes that have moved their art to a different level. There are many individual pieces and an inspiring group rendering of Fulford Harbour that demonstrates how inspiration, passion for the medium and a fearless breaking of the rules can create wonderful art. This lobby exhibit is open weekdays only.
The members of this group are Linda Counsell, Elna Gravelle, Bobbi Janowiak, Gill Kidd, Daniele Manners, Joanie Paterson, Susan Paynter, Karen Selk, Gillian Smith, Karen Tottman and Ineke van Hasselt.
