'Edge of the Forest' Comes to Calgary

On January 11, the Fish Creek Library in Calgary opened the "Edge of the Forest" textile art exhibit.  I last posted about this exhibit just over a year ago when the team of Melanie Siegel, Sheila Thompson, and Rikki Blitt -- all Canadian members of the Surface Design Association (SDA) were preparing to exhibit it in Ontario and later, in Newfoundland.

This juried exhibit features work by 53 artists, in a variety of techniques incorporating textiles.  Several of the artists also belong to SAQA, including:

An article describing the exhibit was written by Leslie Barnes and published in the January/February 2016 issue of The Country Register (Alberta).  For artist biographies and to view images of their work, visit

The exhibit continues at the Fish Creek Library through January 30, with a "Meet the Artist" evening planned for Thursday, January 21, at 7 p.m.  If you are in the area, be sure to take in this very special show!
