Have you ever seen something online that you wished you could do yourself? Well, the women that make up the Tenfold group certainly did. And they rose to the challenge! Their innovative approach has created some fantastically unique pieces, and we want to share them with you! Sidney Museum is hosting the No Rules: Quilt Exhibit April 2 through June 15 featuring a wide range of themes, styles and techniques.
“I describe TenFold as a group of ten slightly crazy women from Campbell River and Black Creek. It started about 10 years ago with a couple of women wanting to experiment with innovative ways of manipulating fabric that they had seen on the internet. Gathering a few friends with the same desire we forged forward. We started quite small but over the years have pushed ourselves to try many different things. Sometimes it has been a struggle as we all came from very traditional quilting backgrounds. However, you will see in the selection of pieces that we have created some truly interesting art.
We do enjoy challenging each other as well as learning new processes, and have had a number of Tenfold Shows locally with a big turnout. We are now looking forward to sharing our innovative art with a fresh audience in the Victoria area.”

The Vancouver Island Surface Design Association is presenting their new exhibition at the Arts Centre at Cedar Hill April 17 to March 5th (10am – 4pm). 27 textile and mixed media artists have responded to the theme “Connections” and will illustrate how the subject was the inspiration for their work. A reception is planned for April 17 from 2-4 pm. Artists will be in attendance.
There’s still time for artists age 12 and under to submit art to our upcoming Earth Day Children’s Art show! ‘The Flying Narwhal’ by Ruby Marley, age 5, is one of the wonderful paintings that will be hanging in the exhibition. The theme is West Coast Waters: Above and Below. Pieces can be 2D or 3D, and framing is not required for this show. Bring in art to the gallery between April 10-14 and sign in on site. Contact Jessica at [email protected] if you have questions. The show runs April 17-28, with a reception from 1-3 pm on Saturday April 20 for artists, their grown ups and their friends. We can’t wait to see and share more fantastic art!
