The Kootenay Gallery is pleased to announce that the gallery has been chosen to host the opening show for the tour of this year’s Grand National Delights Quilt and Fibre Arts Show. The exhibit is open to July 27, with an opening reception to take place on June 8 from 2 -4 pm. All are welcome.

The Exhibition Statement from the Grand National website states: “ Every one of us has pleasures in our lives. What delights you? What makes you happy, joyous and cheerful? What lifts your heart? We asked the fibre artists of Canada to share their ‘Delights’ with us.

This juried exhibition will consist of the works of 35-40 Canadian professional fibre artists from across Canada, each expressing a particular delight that has great meaning to them, resulting in a diverse range of materials, techniques, ideas, concepts, and cheerful thoughts to get us all back on the path to living, having fun and enjoying the pleasures of life once again.”

The gallery is also planning on mounting two workshops that will take place during the show dates. For more details regarding these workshops please visit here for more information. Dates and times to be announced.
