I Recommend

A visit to the Alberta Craft Council gallery in Edmonton to see both current exhibits. On the lower level until September 25 is "For the Love of Craft", mounted as a celebration of the ACC's 30th anniversary this year. Fibre artists are included -- and there are a couple of particularly good pieces; my favourite is "Off the Wall" -- a quilt that -- well, I'll let you see it for yourself!

In the Discovery Gallery on the main level, the featured artist is Linda McBain Cuyler, with an exhibit entitled "Aerial Landscapes" -- and this all textile art by an extraordinarily talented machine thread painter. I can't find a website for her, but she has a spot on Facebook, so if you are able to pop in there, you can see all the photos of the exhibit. It's on only through September 4, so if you can't get there, be sure to visit the Facebook site!
