Ancestry + Legacy

Ancestry + Legacy is a meditation on how past, present, and future are inextricably intertwined.

Edges: SAQA Regional Exhibition

APRIL 7th - JUNE 5th

We encounter many edges in our lives – the edge between water and land, land and sky, day and night, fall and winter, hope and discouragement. We can equally live on the edge, negotiating a path between difficult options or exploring life to its limits. Artists were invited to explore and present their own interpretation of the theme, “Edges”.

Unbound: Contemporary Rope Art
June 2019

Unbound: Contemporary Rope Art Curated by Marcia Young, Editor in Chief of Fiber Art Now Magazine June 30 – October 31 UNBOUND:  It’s unconventional, unexpected, and undeniably intriguing.

Marcia Young, publisher of Fiber Art Now, has brought together the work of twenty artists from around the country who have found unlimited expression in this seemingly mundane medium. Together, they have created a collection that is [...]

It also tells the story of a heroine — a quilt adventurer — who breaks out of her chains, moves through a time machine, and realizes her freedom.  Her friends — a punk-looking fox, faithful antelope, and wise raven--guide her every [...]
