Small Treasures

Small Treasures Art Show and Sale

November 19, 2011 to January 17, 2012
Whyte Museum of the Canadian Rockies, Banff, Alberta
Swiss Guides Room

Good things come in small packages! A favourite tradition of locals and visitors, the Museum hosts its annual holiday season Art Show and Sale. Choose from individual works of art or handcrafted artisan-made gift items. Artists have challenged their artistic boundaries by literally thinking inside the 144 square inch box to create these winter themed treasures.


This is the announcement from the Whyte Museum of the first of my shows there. The gallery is downstairs in the museum, a small room full of Christmas treasures! I have small tabletop framed art + brooches + my newest item...

Smooth pebbles off the beaches around southern Vancouver Island, British Columbia which have been carted over the mountains to the foothills of Alberta, then felted with raw wool fibres, turning them into paperweights that can be stacked or used individually. So many colours and sizes.

These are so tactile (my favourite kind of stuff!) You just have to pick them up and fondle them - the soft wool over the hard stone. I love them!

Hope you can get to the mountains over the Christmas season and get to see all the different types of art on display.
