Eco-Threads is a juried exhibition put on jointly by Vancouver Island Surface Design Association and the Coast Collective in Colwood, on from June 28 to July 9, 2017.
There will be an artists’ reception from 3 to 5 pm followed by a themed fashion show from 7 to 9:30 pm.
All of the work juried into the exhibition and all of the garments in the fashion show have a connection with recycling, re-purposing, or reusing. Some are the result of a studio practice that is kind to the environment while others are about the environment.
The lovely image in the exhibition poster is Bryony Dunsmore’s work.
Douglas-fir: Wind Drawing
I am happy to say my entry was juried into the exhibition.
It is about a Douglas-fir tree in our back yard. The middle part is a drawing done in ink by a branch of the tree on a windy day. The different fabrics are from old bedsheets. The middle one was composted under the tree canopy before being drawn on.
The exhibition is one of many being held during the Northwest Weavers Conference being held at the University of Victoria. The conference theme is ‘Treddle Lightly.’ It is completely sold out but the exhibitions and the Merchants Mall are open to the public.
It is going to be a fun weekend.
