Good News from the Ontario Crafts Council

Just received a surprise check from the Ontario Crafts Council.
It seems that my quilt 'Wild' sold -- hot dog!

Back in November I submitted 'Wild' as part of the Ontario Craft 07, a biennial juried exhibition of works by members of the OCC. I've been a member for ages. I was delighted that they decided to reinstate this exhibit as it provides an excellent Canadian opportunity to show fine craft. Fine craft is the classification for what it is I do/make/produce...

This show was juried by Sandra Ainsley and David Kaye, two gallery owners based in Toronto and Lisa Pai of Lafreniere & Pai Gallery in Ottawa. Two hundred works were submitted and sixty-nine were selected in the media of ceramics, glass, wood, jewelry, metal, textiles and mixed media. The show ran from November 15 to December 31 at the new OCC Gallery at 900 Queen street West.

Here is one last shot of Wild - 128cm x 123 cm
