keeping ahead of the game

The Guild Shop
118 Cumberland St. Toronto,

Stitch: Fibre Beyond Beauty - March 15-April 10,

Opening Reception March 15, 5:30 pm

Fibre artist, Magda Trzaski, leads a group exhibition of Fibre/Textile artists at the Guild Shop. Magda Trzaski received her BFA in New Media from Ryerson University, Toronto in 1999. Since then, she has exhibited her new series of framed multi-media works at C1 Art Space and Prime Gallery, both in Toronto and Bau-Xi Gallery, Vancouver, BC.

“Magda’s works are moments frozen in time. Compelling in their starkness, they beg a closer look, then another. Her cats, rabbits & birds are displayed under glass in forestalled activity as new- found species of animals might have been in the Victorian era. Balloons float in mid-air and balls hover mid-juggle as her creatures balance in a limbo of thought and activity. I find her pieces simply alluring in their form, and utterly thought provoking in story. “ - Jen O’Connor of

Also participating: Tricia Burney, Kate Busby, Emily Hamill, Thea Haines, Maggie Hogan, Chung Im Kim, Arounna Khounnoraj, Marta Zimerisk Panek, Carmella Karijo Rother, Katherine Walter.
