Me and My Shadow

A very special “thank you” to all who sent well wishes this past month during my mother’s illness. Mom is in palliative care and resting comfortably. I was able to spend a month with her through the tremendous support of my friend, Julie (who so capably looked after FibreWorks and the dogs) and the many friends and supporters who assisted her.

Exhibition:

“Drop by Drop” – the work of Catherine Nicholls and Elizabeth Harris Nichols concludes today. (www.harrisnichols.com; www.ravensthread.com)

Approximately 1100 gallery visitors enjoyed the “water” exhibition and many went home with Elizabeth’s jugs, bowls and personal tidal pools.

“Me and My Shadow” – Edna Cers – Sweden – an exhibition of batik opens Saturday, August 11 – 2:00 to 4:00 p.m.

Come and meet the artist and enjoy Edna’s batik works on paper and textiles. Edna’s work has been exhibited in Sweden, Iceland and Chile – this is her first exhibition in North America.
