Art Gallery of Nova Scotia Yarmouth Branch "Transitions" opening reception August 2, 2018 at 5 to 7 pm refreshments will be served, all are welcome!

Every life, every city, every human interaction undergoes change; combine this with nature’s changing seasons and landscapes, and a plethora of transitional episodes occur. With a combination of fabrics and threads, along with embellishments in lace, embroidery floss, wool, and found items, including dyeing, painting, colouring or stamping, the artists have hand-stitched or machine quilted their interpretation of the theme ‘Transitions’. The Transitions exhibition shows some of the finest textile art in Atlantic Canada, including interesting and unusual use of fibre.

This is the third exhibition of the SAQA Atlantic Canada group of fibre artists. This group is part of SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates), an international, non-profit organization dedicated to promoting the art quilt and the artists who create them. The Atlantic Canada chapter of SAQA include members from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland-Labrador.
