This year the Fibres and Beyond group of artists will present three challenge pieces at the spring Consider the Lilies X1V Show.

The show is at the old St. Mary’s Church at Metchosin Corners from April 9 to 17.

For the challenge three images have been divided into segments with individual members completing a segment in their own techniques and interpretation.

The horizontal elements are to line up with neighbouring segments and they will be hung to recreate the original image.

If it sounds like fitting a creative expression in a box, you’re right.

Of course, there will be wonderful pieces by each artist in their chosen speciality and style as well. Including art to wear, silk paintings, weaving, collage, art dolls and felting. Artists include: Linda Danielson, Jessie Taylor Dodd, Gail Erickson, Joy Garnett,  Mary Wolfe, Irm Houle, Phyllis Lysionek, Stephanie Saleem, Judy Seeley, Elizabeth Tanner, Joan Taylor and Isabel Tipton.

Fibres and Beyond is a women’s art textile co-operative based on the south Island.

The accomplished group of 11 was founded in 2002 as a way to support and challenge these artists working with surface design, fibre, fabric and mixed media. The work created by this co-operative ranges in dimension, varying in scale from tiny soft sculpture to large wall pieces.
