AB Royal Museum - Western Threads

I visited the Alberta Royal Museum recently specifically to see one of their feature exhibits called Western Threads. This exhibition brings together the remarkable work by members of the Focus on Fibre Art Association, the Heritage Rug Hookers of Saskatoon and the Studio Art Quilt Associates, Western Canadian Branch.
Over 100 fibre art pieces are featured in the Western Threads: Contemporary Fibre Art exhibition.

One of the arts presented were Fabric Postcards.  There were quite a few of them and I chose 3 of them to show here.  They say we can get involved!
Here`s a link to how we as Albertans can make a fabric postcards and mail it to the museum and they will put it on display!  Here`s more details.

Here`s a sampling from each of the groups participating.  The quilt in the top left is called `Not so black and white`by Cathy Tomm - Leduc.  The Grain Elevator rug on the top right is called `Winter Solitude`by Ian Hague Regina Saskatchewan, and the bottom right hand is `Roundabout`by Dianne Kyrs.  The picture to the left of this one is a close up of a acrylic flower she had put on one of the circles. It had all kinds of  embellishments.  Very cool!

A great afternoon!  I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Check it out if you have a couple hours. On this display till August 4 2014.
