Rebecca - Juror's Choice

Wow, imagine our delight when we discovered last night that not only has Rebecca been accepted into the show but had also been chosen as Juror's Choice. More that 40 peices where entered and only 18 accepted, I know I share the excitement and honour with my fellow artists! Well done my friends, and thank you all for you hard work and dedication!

The Juror's were Emma Quinn, Executive Director, Ontario Arts Council and Sandra Dupret, Dean, Haliburton Campus, Fleming College and the comments were so very positive ...

Thank you so much for stopping by,
Very best wishes, Barbara

Rebecca - a collaborative work

As some of you may know by now, I belong to a group of Fibre Artists known as the Burlington Fibre Arts and 15 of us have been working on a collaborative piece known as Rebecca.

Well, you may look at the photos of my piece in progress and wonder how we came up with Rebecca?

This whole project with all of us has come about after a Call For Entry of tall tales and history of the Burlington Arts Centre ~ so Rebecca is a sculpture ... which looks nothing like a woman ~ but does have many lights and shadows, and also much negative space to work with.

As a group we decided to “move” Rebecca to a place where light and shadow is even more prevalent … this has not been without its challenges but I am sure the piece will come together to show Rebecca in her best light!

We all have strips of the finished composition which are about 6 or 7 inches wide but about 55” high. They will all hang side by side to form the larger composition.

This is my slice of Rebecca,

More pictures soon,
Very best wishes,
