Fibre Arts and Poetry at Godfrey Dean - January 7 to February 23, 2019. Our first exhibition for 2019 features quilted and sewn fabric works created by 40 members of FAN, Western Canada’s Fibre Art Network. They titled the exhibition Ekphrastic, which refers to the act of responding to art work in literary form. In this case, the quilters are using their fabric art skills to respond to literary work: twelve Canadian poets were invited to submit a poem and FAN members created quilts for each, inspired by or interpreting the written word. It’s a spectacular display of sewing, quilting and innovative fabric ideas. Admission is always free! Godfrey Dean Art, Gallery 49 Smith St. E, Yorkton, SK www.deangallery.ca
