The Minerva Arts Centre had a special Sunday opening so that the contemporary art quilt group Six and Friends, whose work graces our current exhibition, could meet visitors and talk about their work. Hilary Beattie gave a fascinating demonstration of a lively technique for creating a background for applied silhouettes.
It isn’t often that SiX and Friends can get together – it is a shame that Catherine Nicholls could not be here, but she and Edwina Mackinnon will be back in August to run workshops. Along with Orientation by SiX and Friends, the exhibition includes work by Cauldron, and a selection of Canadian Red Cross quilts. Dr. Anna Mansi is giving a talk on these vintage quilts on August 3 – see our website for details. The exhibition is on until September 7 2013.
