We are excited to have DIANNE GIBSON, well known and highly respected Artist from Fonthill, ON as our visiting Guest Fibre Artist for the Weekend of May 22-24th, 2015. Dianne will share her MIXED MEDIA ASSEMBLAGES workshop with those who have secured the limited number of seats in this exciting hands on and creative Textile Design Workshop weekend.
Dianne's work is stunning, and always perfectly suited to large scale exhibition space. The piece below, Undulations, was a show stopper at the Art Gallery of Burlington this past fall, hung alongside her beautiful Waterfall shown father below.
Please consider marking your calendar now and plan on spending the May 22-24th weekend at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, ON as you study technique, design, stitch and critique with Dianne and our Workshop students.
UndulationsMy collaged assemblages explore a love of richly textured surfaces. Inspired by the idea of flotsam collecting in undulating waves. An assortment of fibres, papers, fabrics, metal, threads & beads.
Dianne GibsonI have a passion for rich textures. Distressed papers, torched metals, abaca fibre, wood and wire have all found their way into my work. I feel drawn to the juxtaposition of these hard-edged materials, against the softer qualities of cloth and threads. I am happiest when I’m experimenting with new techniques.
WATERFALL, Dianne Gibson
