2024 Grand National - DELIGHTS
We are pleased to announce our second touring exhibition of Canadian Fibre Art. After the past few years of cancelled trips, isolation and basically life on hold, we are ready for some fun.
Every one of us has pleasures in our lives. What delights you? What makes you happy, joyous and cheerful? What lifts your heart? We asked the fibre artists of Canada to share their ‘Delights’ with us.
This juried exhibition will consist of the works of 35-40 Canadian professional fibre artists from across Canada, each expressing a particular delight that has great meaning to them, resulting in a diverse range of materials, techniques, ideas, concepts, and cheerful thoughts to get us all back on the path to living, having fun and enjoying the pleasures of life once again.
