It’s almost time…I’ve been like a kid at Christmas, awake since 2:55 am, anticipating and thinking, up and back to bed a few times. Finally gave in and got up for good but trying to be quiet and not wake my neighbours.
Today is the official start of my week at Art Quilt Campus 2017 with artist and teacher Anna Hergert. This is my fifth year of participating with Anna in a week long discovery of art quilting involving fibre, surface design, stitching, idea sharing and friendship.
I’m joining a new group of artist this year so I’m excited to see their work, their processes and get to know their lively personalities. The 15 of us gathered last night for a shared dinner and words of welcome from Anna along with the unveiling of some stunning work. Most of these artists attended AQC together last year and embarked on producing three challenge pieces over the course of the past year. It was an inspirational start to the week as I gazed over the 36 pieces that had been developed under the themes of “Within and Without”, “Water”, and “Girlfriend”.
I’m about to gear up for the day with a walk out in Saskatchewan country side but I’ll leave off with a few pictures from my drive here yesterday.
