About my upcoming exhibit ...
Riel Nason's debut textile art exhibit entitled "A 1/4 Inch Scream" will be displayed in the Canada Games Gallery at the Saint John Arts Centre (20 Peel Plaza, Saint John, NB) from Friday, September 12, 2014 until Friday, October 31, 2014.
Everyone is welcome to come to the free opening reception for all exhibits on Friday, September 12 from 5:30-7:30pm. (Snacks, mingling, see the art, and hear the 5 artists who are showing in each of the 5 galleries say Hi and talk a wee bit about their work). Or, if you can't make the opening, please stop by any time the Saint John Arts Centre is open. Admission is free.
About the Exhibit: Halloween, horror -- and quilting? A 1/4 Inch Scream is a lighthearted look at the sometimes scary enthusiasm that quilters have for their craft. Works are free-pieced combining elements of both traditional and modern quilting. Hundreds of pieces of recycled selvages cut from quilting cottons are a main element of each of the 10 art quilts which make up the series.
