The Lecture will be held in Room 12040 on the Upper Level in the Link Corridor just off the Administrative Wing. Our guests may come in through the main doors of the college and walk through the cafeteria and into the Link Corridor. Classroom 12040 will be on your right near the end of the corridor.

Alternatively, guests and students may come into the campus off Country Club Drive, and turn into the SECOND entrance and drive past the technology building which faces on Country Club across from the Golf Course Clubhouse. 

There will be a parking lot just past and behind the Tech building where you are close to the entry door. Turn right into that lot and you will be facing Door E12 which is the entry to take to come to our Lecture. Take the stairs up or ride the elevator and turn left into the Link hallway. The classroom will be on your left.

There will be signage all along the way to the classroom.... and you will be my guest - no entry fee for the Lecture evenings this year!!!

We have two seats available in the workshop... and you can  click on the Workshop #4 - Dianne Gibson page on the right sidebar here at the blog for all of the details. 

Workshop Registration forms and information is available on the sidebar as well.

Please make time to come meet and, if at all possible, spend time in the Weekend Workshop "MIXED MEDIA ASSEMBLAGES" with Dianne and friends.


Dianne Gibson is a textile and mixed media artist who grew up in Niagara Falls, studied at the Ontario College of Art and now lives in Fonthill.  

She has been exhibiting her work for over 20 years and is an active member of the Connections Fibre Artists group. Her artwork has been featured in both Canadian and International publications; and the atrium of the Niagara Regional Headquarters houses her 24’ permanent installation.

A passion for textures and a fascination with experimentation are major influences on her art.  Drawn to the juxtaposition of hard-edged materials combined with the softer qualities of fibres, Dianne consciously looks for unique combinations of materials to construct the textured surfaces that fascinate her. She says, “It’s a wonderful excuse to collect an endless array of tools and treasures, to play with.”

See you at St. Lawrence COLLEGE
