Spring Shows to See - Part II

Synesthesia 24: Golden Yellow
Lesley Turner
In addition to "People & Places" showing in Manitoba, I know of at least three shows in B.C. that have opened this month.  All have been listed on the "Networking" page of this blog, but here are a few visuals:

Synesthesia 4: Spring Green
Lesley Turner
In addition to her participation in "Edge of the Forest", B.C. member Lesley Turner is showing several pieces in an exhibit entitled "Small Expressions" which opened March 4 at the Tulista Gallery in Sidney, B.C. under the auspices of the Community Arts Council of the Saanich Penninsula.  The show runs through March 29.  If you're in the area, do treat yourself to a viewing of her little gems.

Meanwhile, B.C. member Catherine Nicholls is involved in three exhibits!  The first is "Mended", a group exhibit presented by the Surface Design Association - B.C. and The Yukon -- which includes work by several SAQA members:

Participants who are SAQA members include:
"Mended" opens March 17 at Il Museo, part of the Italian Cultural Centre in Vancouver; from there it travels to Fibreworks Gallery on the Sunshine Coast (August 20 - October 4) and next year, to the Place des Arts in Coquitlam, B.C.

At the same time, Catherine has a solo show opening March 17 at the City Atrium Gallery in the North Vancouver, B.C.  Note that it runs through May 11, and that Catherine will be giving an Artist's Talk the afternoon of Tuesday, March 24: the end of March, some of Catherine's work will be included in the exhibit, "Cherry Blossoms: A Textile Translation", opening March 31 at the Silk Purse Gallery in West Vancouver.

I await Catherine's permission to post particular photos of her work on this site, but meanwhile, you can catch up with her on her own blog HERE.

P.S.  Special thanks to members Terry Aske, Karen Johnson and Jaynie Himsl who are going to be at Quilt Canada 2015 in Lethbridge, AB (June 4-6) and who, though they are volunteering at the Fibre Art Network booth and elsewhere, have offered to spell me off a bit at the SAQA 25th Anniversary Trunk Show (Section "F") booth.  I will be "personing" the booth most of the time between June 4 and June 6...If anyone else would like to volunteer to ensure I don't starve, thirst (coffee!) or otherwise injure myself (ahem!)...please e-mail me at

And thanks for your support!
