at Eilean Donan Castle,
Mary and Margaret were part of the Celtic Quilt Tours trip to Scotland in September 2017, and determined even before they travelled that they'd like to pool their inspirations for a collaborative exhibit. That the Camrose Art Walk -- in which Mary has participated for a dozen years now! -- agreed to show their work in such a lovely venue as the Performing Arts Centre was the icing on the cake.
In the past year Mary has explored more fully the technique of wet felting -- which she then quilts -- so many of her pieces will include this unique way of expressing her love of the beauty of nature she found in Scotland.

Margaret has discovered a way to combine quilting with painted stretched canvas, so many of the pieces she's created for the show will feature her explorations in this area.

A "Meet the Artists" Reception will be held at the Performing Arts Centre on Wednesday, August 15, from 5:00 to 7:30 p.m. -- and they hope to see some of their friends there -- especially those from Central Alberta and perhaps Edmonton. 😊
