13 years of Considering the Lilies at St. Mary’s

Fibres & Beyond hold annual show timed for lily display

Fields full of lilies signal annual April fibre art show

April is rolling around and bringing with it another “Consider the Lilies” show.

Fibres and Beyond Presents:

Consider The Lilies XIII April 11 – 19 at the heritage St. Mary’s Anglican Church on  Metchosin Road.

Monday- Saturday 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Sunday April 12, 12 – 4.30 p.m., April 19, 12 – 4 p.m.

Fibres and Beyond is a diverse group of women whose ages span five decades.

They have continued to meet and show together for13 years. A love of the tactile, the textures and the colourful possibilities of creating with fibre, is the thread that stitches the group together. Friendships have grown as life stories unfold for each member. The group has been a constant in each other’s lives, offering support in times of sorrow and delight in times of celebration. Providing inspiration and encouragement as they show each other the latest project or completed piece. The artwork and expression has changed over the thirteen years. For some it has been a progression and is recognizable as the same artist’s work. For others, the transformation leaves one wondering whose piece it is.

The show will include wall pieces, garments and art dolls, a beautiful variety of artwork utilizing many techniques.

The artists include: Linda Danielson, Jessie Taylor Dodd, Gail Erickson, Joy Garnett, Mary Wolfe, Irm Houle, Phyllis Lysionek, Stephanie Saleem, Judy Seeley, Eiizabeth Tanner, Joan Taylor, Isabel Tipton.

The beautiful wild lilies will greet you in the churchyard, and their vibrant namesakes look forward to chatting with you at the art show inside.

We encourage you to come and enjoy our show.
