It is amazing to see so many different interpretations of "Minerals".
We received many wonderful textile pieces from Ontario, Saskatchewan, Nova Scotia and even one from a Canadian living in Umbria, Italy!!
The 6 member jury, made up of artists and scientists, have chosen the top 10 works to be exhibited at the PDAC (Prospectors and Developers Association of Canada) in March 2013 at the Convention Centre in Toronto. Six artists were invited to create a work to be added to these top ten selected for a total of 16 pieces.
There will be more posts about this exhibit in March, including pictures of the works.
This exhibit has also been invited to be part of Verona Tessile, the international fibre festival taking place in Verona, Italy, from April 16 to 21, 2013.
