Stories from Nature

The Gerogina Fibre Artists

Feb 5 – March 22, 2024

The members of Georgina Fibre Artists are passionate about nature in their own backyards, in the larger Canadian landscape, and around the world.  Majestic creatures, beautiful flowers, eye-catching rock formations, aggressive thunderstorms and the infinite variety of colours in the changing seasons:  these all provide daily inspiration. 

The artworks selected for “Stories from Nature” invite you the viewer to see what we see when we look up or look down at our subjects.  They are intended to delight, with the variety, beauty and bold impact of the natural world around us.

This exhibition features a variety of styles and interpretations of mixed media fibre art, showcasing the work of local artists with a variety of backgrounds and artistic interests.

Ellen Downe’s work spans fibre art, acrylics and oils, frequently combining media for maximum impact. Nature is her muse: butterflies and wildflowers are a passion that frequently shows up in her work, as do the wonderful Lake Simcoe sunsets. She is a Textile Design graduate of Georgian College Design Arts.

Ellen has been exhibiting her work locally for many years, including at the Georgina Art Gallery in Sutton, the Georgina Studio Tour, and the International Women’s Day exhibition at Orillia Gallery of Art & History.

As an emerging artist, Ingrid combines her love of photography, colour, texture, and nature into representational and abstract works of art which tell a visual story.  Many of her works include hand dyed, painted or mono printed fabrics as well as hand stitching. Her first work to be exhibited into a juried show won an Honourable Mention at the Homer Watson Gallery in 2019. She has participated in the International Women’s Day exhibition at OMAH in Orillia and this is her first show with the Georgina Fibre

Sue Sherman’s fabric creations connect her to the spectacular places and wildlife she has seen in her travels. She aims to give the animal kingdom a voice, by transforming white cotton into lifelike creatures through many hours of precise painting with dyes and thread. She is passionate about protecting earth’s creatures along with their habitats.

Her quilts have won awards at national and international events, have been accepted into juried art exhibitions, and have been displayed at galleries and museums in Canada and abroad. She is also a Juried Artist Member of Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA).

Susan Sellers has had a drive to create since childhood.  She began quilting in 2000 and hasn’t looked back. She keeps her mind firmly open to new techniques and materials. A love of colour guides the exploration, with fabric as the medium of expression. To allow inspiration to come from the subject, her style ranges from representational to abstract.

This is Susan’s first exhibition with the Georgina Fibre Artists.
