Upcoming Exhibition in Calgary - April 2010

ARTICULATION is one of the guest artists invited to show at the Canadian Quilters' Association (CQA) conference being held at the Telus Convention Centre in downtown Calgary from April 28th through May 1st. We have over 200 feet of exhibition space that we are filling with the theme of Canadian landscapes.

Our artist statement reads:
“Ess-scape” – A Flight From Confinement

Shedding the threaded bonds of traditional textile art, Articulation presents a collection of work by female artists who have studied issues and landscapes of Western Canadian mountain, rain forest, and urban regions. They break new ground while portraying the essence of the history, culture, and surroundings that the Rockies inspire. The BC rain forest communicates its own unique story while the architecture from man-made structures provides a different frame of reference for study and outlook.

The suffix for ‘female’ is ‘-ess’ and by using it as a prefix, Articulation sets the tone for an exhibit that celebrates some of Canada’s diversity while presenting cultural and social issues and the environment in a fresh format. ‘Escape’ also means a ‘flight from confinement’ – what Articulation always strives to accomplish.


Seven of the nine Articulation artists will be in town for this show, working the floor, interacting with the public. We would love to see you there!
