Colour with a U – SAQA exhibit
Homer Watson House and Gallery
1754 Old Mill Rd, Kitchener, ON
July 7 – September 7, 2020
Colour with a “U” is a juried exhibition of thirty-five art quilts by Canadian members of Studio Art Quilt Associates. In Canada, we spell colour with a “U”. We care about the “U”, it makes us unique. We care about the “you”, it brings us together. Thirty-five artists have reflected on the theme of diversity and inclusion to give “colourful” representations of our Canadian cultural identity. Each offers an individual perspective on how we as Canadians see ourselves in our social, historical, and physical landscape. Nothing can match experiencing the rich textures, colours, shapes, and messages in person. (from Homer Watson House and Gallery).
Prairie Persepctives – Travelling Exhibit
by the Fibre Art Divas – a Manitoba group of 14 fibre artists
Tentative schedule – August 2020
The exhibit consists of two parts: the first a collection of 12” x 12” pieces in which each artist has created a piece of art based on their interpretation of a photograph of a Manitoba lake at sunset, and the second a grouping of 24” x 36” pieces based on the theme ‘Prairie Perspectives’.
The Fibre Art Divas formed as a group in 2014, with the idea of sharing their mutual interest in fibre arts, encouraging and supporting each other, sharing ideas and gaining inspiration.
Thirteen of the artists are involved in this exhibit.
