August 2015 Artspring, Salt Spring Island
“During the month of August there will be an exciting new show by the Island Textile Artist’s group. These individuals are interested in exploring the many aspects of textiles, art and design to express their own diversity and to push their own limits of working with fabrics. Many members started with the sewing and quilting craft but have experimented with new techniques, products and processes that have moved art to a different level. Their new show titled “If Once You Have Slept on an Island” shows the great diversity of the group. There are many individual “pieces” and an inspiring group rendering of Fulford Harbour that shows how inspiration, passion for the medium and a fearless breaking of the rules can create truly wonderful art.
