Today marks the start of a marvellous exhibition of quilts by members of the Revelstoke Quilting Guild. If you have never seen any of their previous shows you are in for a real treat. Their fabric artworks are true vision of charm, dreams and power that are certain to capture and hold your full attention.
Their show, which is being held in conjunction with an exhibition of print making by local artists, begins with an opening this evening — Friday, October 11 — at the Revelstoke Art Gallery, located in the old RCMP detachment at 320 Wilson Street behind the Days Inn that starts at 6 pm and runs until 9. Admission is by donation.
Both exhibitions are on display to the public Tuesday through Saturday from 2 pom until 4 pm until November 1.
The print making show is interesting as we don’t often see many woodblock of lino prints exhibited in Revelstoke. Many prints are almost spare in their design and use of colour, but some are nearly as bright and complex as paintings and you’ll see examples of both in this show.
The Current will have more images and test about these shows later, but now — Just to tantalize you! — here is a selection of images from both shows:
