The tapestries of Thoma Ewen, jewellery of Gabby Ewen, painted silk of Dale Shutt and fibre art landscapes of Catharine Timm provide a glimpse into these artists’ unique paths, distinctly divergent in technique yet remaining dedicated to the material lineage of textile art.   
Vernissage September 13, 6-8 pm. The shows continue until October 6. The gallery is open Saturdays and Sundays, 11 am to 4 pm.

While the idea of festival is always good, the logistics to attending can be daunting  the four different time clusters and geographic areas do / dose make it possible to see all the shows if you have personal ground transportation, public transportation limits what you can see. While I am planing on attending the Lang Pioneer Village Textile Festival on August 18th and heading to Ottawa for the opening of Homage to Micheline Beauchemin on the 21 it is getting from Ottawa to Saint-André-Avellin Quebec for Michèle Provost's exhibition "A day in the life of Maggy M::" opening on the 24th presents a problem.

Interestingly enough  Festival Twist --- Fibre Artisanale  is happening there that weekend so I need to go don't I. I just thought I would put up these maps so you could get an idea of the geography involved
