Trees, Threadworks Artist Reception

Today, my friend and I travelled to the Wellington County Museum to the Trees Fibre Art Show for the artists' reception. Here I am in front of my art piece 'The Message." Below is a favourite piece called, "Wild Desire", a mixed media artwork by Carol Weibe.

My friend Sandra, is posing with her favourite, "Shoe Tree", by Nancy McNab.

Grand Prize
"Three Leaves" by Gordana Brelih

"Can't See the Trees for the Forest" by Linda Heibert
Yes those are lambs in the trees! Delightful!

"A New Beginning" by Hieke Blohm
Honourable Mention

Curator's Award
Frankie LeMonde-Meunier's "Trees Dancing for Joy"
I love Frankie's fibre art, it appeals to my love of colour and texture. Frankie bought an art piece of mine last year at my solo show.
This is just a taste of the show which is exceptional in every way! It is a privilege to be included and a great affirmation of my fibre art. There are many artists in this show that I admire and have been a student in their classes. I intend to go back to see the show in more depth!

The auction was finalized on April 24th at 2 p.m. I bid on Anna's tote because I love her painting. Inside each tote was a pass to the Halton Region Conservation Areas, a very good eco prize. I am proud to announce that my tote sold for the most money, $140! A friend bid on it and won. Please don't tell her husband! :>)
