Jurors: Catherine Heard and David H. Kaye

Canadian artists from coast to coast participate in this juried competition, now in its 13th edition. The competition honours the community's rich textile manufacturing history and provides a showcase for the extraordinary work carried out by Canadian artists working in the fibre medium. This year's jurors, Catherine Heard and David H. Kaye, have selected works that truly represent the diversity and ingenuity of these artists.

Curated by Esther E. Shipman

This exhibition features the work of established and highly regarded textile designer-entrepreneurs from across Canada, whose work bridges the worlds of art and commercial fabrication. Each of the studios in the exhibition is represented by several examples of their work, providing an opportunity for a closer look into their individual design styles, products and collections.

Toronto Outdoor 2010

This past July was my first year exhibiting at the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition in Nathan Phillips Square....
I really enjoyed the show. It turned out to be a crazy weekend beginning with setting up in an extreme rain storm followed by a two day intense heat wave. I was lucky to be surrounded by good neighbors as well as a number of my harbourfront friends in the adjacent booths. All in all the weekend turned out to be a good one full of some emotional highs and lows, familiar and new faces, booth tours and lots of ice cream and lemonade. Here are a couple of pics from the show...
