WHITEHORSE: Fourteen artisans at the Kluane Quilter’s Guild have created a 21 foot collaborative art piece about the Yukon River and the exhibit is opening at the Yukon Transportation Museum on April 3rd from 5 to 7 pm.
‘We had so much fun exploring the Yukon River through this medium. The river is such a special part of this place and the project was a very poignant one for the participants.’ Said Dahn Casselman, VP of the Kluane Quilter’s Guild.
This exhibit will be on display through December 2017. ‘I was so pleased when the guild contacted me about this beautiful show. From the river’s headwaters to its meandering outflow into the Bering Sea, the Yukon river is vital as a transportation corridor, it is the source of our stories and it shapes our way of life.’ said YTM ED Janna Swales.
YTM is committed to the Yukon community: offering its space and resources for community events and inviting wide ranging conversations such as this one. www.goYTM.ca
Quilts on the Wall are: Catherine Clarke, Helen Garland and Doris Lovadina-Lee. The group was formed in 2015. This is their first joint exhibit, presenting art quilts based on the theme “Connections”.
Join the artists at the opening reception of the exhibit on Friday, June 9th 2017, from 5:30 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. Light refreshments will be served.
Catherine Clarke is an experienced quilter and member of the Toronto Modern Quilt Guild (TMQG) and Yorkshire Rose Quilters’ Guild of Toronto (YRQGT). She explores new expressions of quilting traditions. The theme allowed Catherine to pursue the emergence of secondary patterns through colour placement and simple graphic designs that express our connections to ideas and language.
Helen Garland is a member of the YRQGT. She started making quilts as a serious art form 8 years ago creating complex-pieced designs representing the world around us. For this exhibit Helen investigated the ‘perception’ of connectedness.
Doris Lovadina-Lee has been an avid quilter for 15 years and is a member of the TMQG and YRQGT. Doris hand-dyes much of the fabric used in her more recent quilts and enjoys exploring traditional quilt block forms over the course of a series. She used “Connections” to focus on mosaic pieces that reference the past while looking toward the pixilation found in digital formats.
