I tried out my new iPhone for these photos and I cannot believe the colour saturation. Not bad! Some could be focused a bit better. I won't be abandoning my camera any time soon, but in a pinch these are pretty okay pictures. Here's a small sampling of rugs from the show.
I Like Giraffes by Anne Vulliamy
Don't you just love his fuschia tail and how he has to scrunch his neck to fit in the frame? Sweet.
Hush Little Baby by Karen Nicolson
Ivy by Donna Heinrich
Donna did a rug of both her dogs (I think)...here's the other one:
Roxy by Donna Heinrich
Quilters by Sandi Hill (my quilting pal - she is also a fantastic hooker!!)
Les Boules by Sandi Hill
I like the primitive hooking style combined with contemporary colours on Sandi's Les Boules....for me it's akin to using mod fabrics for traditional quilt patterns. The next photo rug, "Glorious Triangles" by Linda Spence is similar....funky mod coloured wonky triangles surrounding a folk art bunny shape. Cool!
Blue Goats by Tanya Graham (the sideways text reads: arti choke folk).
I wish I knew the story behind this rug - love the textured background.
If you live in the Lower Mainland, this show is running at the Seymour Art Gallery in Deep Cove until April 3. There is a fabulous contemporary table runner up for grabs in the fund raising draw and the gallery has an outstanding little artists gift shop. Check it out!
