“mended” in Vancouver

Mended Horizontal

 

 

 

 

A travelling exhibition of contemporary textile art.

Surface Design Association of British Columbia and Yukon

In this exhibition twenty-five BC textile artists created new two and three-dimensional works in response to the word mended.

A broken heart, relationships and even a pair of old socks can require mending at some point. Is it possible to make something more useful or functional by mending? And what about mending your ways? The works in this exhibition reflect diverse experiences and interpretations of mending through creative expressions about family, love, loss, and renewal.

The exhibition includes works by Judy Alexander, Cher Cartwright, Constance Chapman, Linda Coe, Susan Duffield, Eleanor Hannan, Anni Hunt, Linda Ingham, Jennifer Love, Judi MacLeod, Barbara McCaffrey, Catherine Nicholls, Freda Pagani, Susan Purney-Mark, Morija Reeb, Brigitte Rice, Thomas Roach, Kristin Rohr, Dawn Michelle Russell, Shamina Senaratne, Michelle Sirois-Silver, Jill Sullivan, Lilly Thorne, Sheila Wex, Patt Wilson.
