Calyx Art Exhibition

CALYX Art Exhibition and Sale was started 10 years ago by four Alberta College of Art and Design graduates. It has grown so much in the past 10 years that they now run it twice a year (April and October) and have ~25 different artists each day.

This year it runs:
Saturday October 17 and Sunday October 18, 2009
10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Crescent Heights Community Centre
1101 2nd Street NW, Calgary, AB

and I will be participating on Sunday the 18th.

I will have a wide variety of art offerings this year - from wall pieces based upon UNESCO sites in Canada to summer fruits. I also have my Keepsake Pouch necklaces (over 3000 individual stitches in making the pouch, decorated with beads and metal findings, then filled with semi-precious stones listing their spiritual properties.) I have a few brooches and small frames pieces and, new this year, Devore Silk Scarves in many different colours and patterns.

I attended the artist meeting the other night and I got a preview of all the wonderful artists and their work that will be offered in this year's sale.

On Sunday with me will be:
Michelle Wilman and her handmade beads made into jewellery
Heather Brewster with her newest venture into assemblages
Lisa Brawn whose work was on flags on the bridges over the Bow River this summer
raku from Linda Mosher
basketry in metal from Crys Harse
fine woodwork from Kathy Somerville
and the painters;
Eleanor Lowden Pidgeon
Connie Geerts
Angie Rees - funky versions of dreams
Kathy Lycka
plus 15 others!!!
