Mark Makers is a group of fibre artists who all met up in the Lower Studio of the Victoria College of Art, Victoria BC.
They studied mark making by hand with the threaded needle and mark making with the sewing machine, and some went on to study the design of repeating patterns.
They enjoyed being together as a group so much they have continued to meet regularly to share, support and inspire, to have workshops, go to exhibitions together, and movies, and go on a retreat for the weekend.
These mark makers have decided it is time to show what they have been creating.
They are having their first exhibition of fine arts textiles in the college where they got together.
The exhibition opens on Sunday August 11 and closes on Saturday August 17 with a closing reception from 1 to 3 pm.
The rest of the week the exhibition will be open from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm with artists in attendance at all times.
Groups can phone Eileen, 250 592 9404, to arrange a tour led by attending artists.
If you are in town I do hope you can get to the college to see this exhibition of fine arts textiles.
