Current and Future Exhibitions

Here is a list of exhibitions where my work is currently appearing, or will be on display in the near future.

 

(in)finite: spiritual conversations in cloth
May 25 to June 4, 2017 – Christ Church Cathedral, Vancouver, BC
Opening reception: Saturday, May 27 from 5 to 7 pm

This exhibition features thirty Canadian textile artists and their explorations into the realm of the sacred. The works span an array of traditional and innovative textile media. Presented are new perspectives on centuries-old religious vestments, liturgical items and ritual practices, and radical reinterpretations of sacred space and private meditation. The work of these artists offers significant insight into the important role cloth plays in the Canadian contemporary spiritual landscape.
