Tomorrow afternoon, 21 April, 2013, the Grand National Quilt Show opens in Kitchener, ON at Homer Watson House and Gallery. I was fortunate enough to have both of my entries accepted for the show and will be attending the opening. If you look carefully, you will see that I also had the honour of having my quilt, Red Iris, chosen for the photo on the official invitation to the show! This was hugely exciting for me .
There are over fifty works in the show apparently, from all across Canada illustrating each participating artist's "take" on the theme, "Local Colour". I am really looking forward to seeing what others did. You know me! I am a literalist and a realist so my two pieces, Red Iris and Smoke Bush Leaves are both representations of the glorious colours I am surrounded by so close to my home.
If you are in or near Kitchener, ON, DO drop in and see the quilts. The show runs till 23 June, 2013.
