Niagara Regional Fibre Art

In 2012 the Niagara Region celebrated the 200th anniversary of the War of 1812. They decided to mark the occasion with a permanent fibre art display for the regional headquarters building. A group of local artists were enlisted to interpret photographs of landscapes in fibre.
I was thrilled to be one of these artists. the panel that I made in on the left.  The center panel is a rug hooking done by Ruth Emmerson and the panel on the right is a fibre panel by Greta Hilenbrand.
There are also seven other works of art hanging in the same hall.
They are available for viewing any time the regional headquarters are open. Mainly 9 to 5 but sometimes available during evening hours.
I urge you to see them up close and personal whenever you are in the St. Catharines area.
