The Whole Shebang

 The Cambridge Art Galleries  (The Idea Exchange) in Cambridge Ontario will be show-casing the entire colelction of Canadian Contemporary Fibre Art November 24 2017 to February 18 2018.
Judy Martin's 1993 quilt "Hold Me" is part of this collection, acquired in 1994.

The text couched into the border reads:  "When you consider something like death, then it probably doesn't matter if we try too hard, are awkward sometimes, or love one another too deeply in order to know life.'"
 The entire quilt is made of rayon cloth and is hand quilted and embroidered.
There will be a symposium to discuss the collection on Saturday January 27, 2018.

Guided tours of the collection run on Tuesday evenings 7 pm and Saturday afternoons at 2 pm.
