OOTB Exhibitions

  • 'Fibre Frolics' at Shenkman Centre – August – September 4, 2018
    The work of twenty-three OOTB artists are featured in the Display Case, all varied, creative, beautiful. If you're looking for a little extra inspiration there are different art exhibits happening all the time at the Shenkman, in the adjoining salons and downstairs, and they are all free of charge. To top it off, there is ample parking in front of the building, and in the lot around back; for people who like the bus, it's a short walk from the bus stop at Place d'Orléans to the Shenkman.

Artist: Juanita Sauvé submitted two art pieces to Focus on Fibre Arts Association 2018 Juried Competition 'Climate Change' in Edmonton, AB showing from May 3 to July 3, 2018. Both pieces were very well received.

    Wildfire - A Terrible Beauty
    Wildfires; A Terrible Beauty
  • won 2nd place in Felting 2D Original Design
  • Best of Category for overall felting
  • Techniques and Materials: Wet felted with roving, silk, Angelina fibres. Hand stitched and mounted on altered canvas.

    Artist Statement: Horrified by the news of wildfires with their images of destruction and trauma, I was also aware of the terrible beauty of this force of nature. Wildfires are increasing worldwide influenced by warming temperatures, early spring melts, longer fire seasons, extreme weather, high winds and warmth loving insects.

    Where There's Smoke…There's Fire
    Where There's Smoke…There's Fire
  • won 1st place in Quilt Small Innovative Original Design
  • Best of Category for overall Quilt Category
  • Best of Show
  • This award included a place at 2019 Quilt Canada
  • Techniques and Materials: Inspired by a piece of Pat Hardie's snow dyed fabric, hand stitched 'flames' and stitched text swirl around in the sky symbolizing chaos. Machine quilted. Mounted on fabric covered canvas in a floating frame.

    Artist Statement: Perhaps too much CNN where the oft repeated phrase 'Where there's smoke…there's fire' caught my attention. A change in the political climate in the USA brought accusations, lies, truths, alternative facts, firings, memory losses, Russian connections, hateful crude phrases, racist, sexist and anti-immigrant rhetoric, whirling around us all. What was the basis of this chaos? An exclusive nationalism? Was money involved? It all ended up on this piece of fabric.
