'Urban Textures' has opened


Articulation has a new exhibition on after a most successful opening.


The Mennonite Heritage Centre Gallery and Archives is in a soaring wooden building.


Ray, the director, knows his space well and placed each work to its advantage.


This body of work is large enough to fill to the space.

The Hanging

Today Articulation's Urban Textures body of work is being hung in the Mennonite Cultural Heritage Centre gallery, in Winnipeg. It will be the first time the whole body of work will be together.
Articulation is a Canadian group of textile artists whose members live on 2 coasts and places in between. They produce their art in their own studios and it is only when there is a hanging that all of the work is sent to one place. It is always a thrill to see the work together, interacting with each other.
Also, it is so interesting to see the different interpretations from the same inspiration that was gathered during our annual study week.
The opening is on Friday September 18, 2009, where there will be members of Articulation is attendence.
The exhibition is on until November 14, 2009.

Winnipeg Inspiration

All Articulation members have shut themselves in their studios and no one is hearing much from them these days as the date for their next exhibition gets closer. Using images from a week long study of the historical buildings of Winnipeg and after doing lots of research, they are each producing a series to be exhibited in the Mennonite Cultural Heritage Building Gallery, along with the work that has recently been hanging in the McMullen Gallery in Edmonton. The Mennonite Gallery is twice as big so they have all continued producing Winnipeg inspired works.

And there was no shortage of inspiration in Winnipeg with its rich history and early wealth reflected in magnificent buildings.


Each member is interpreting the 'Urban Textures' theme in their own way and using their own chosen stitch techniques. The architecture will be interpreted in a wide variety of textiles & fibres.


The exhibition scope also includes the architecture of flowers as a response to floral displays they found in the botanical gardens and in garden beds of heritage homes.
