Semiahmoo Arts Council is co-sponsoring an exhibit of craft artistry in partnership with the White Rock Museum to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Craft Council of BC. ‘Rock, Paper, Scissors: The Transformative Power of Craft’ features among other artists, the work of fibre artist, Anne Steves (see above image) The show also features several interesting pieces by fibre artist, Diane Zwickel. Diane is presenting a free felting/knitting demonstration this Sunday, September 29 from 1-3pm at the White Rock Museum. As a lifelong lover of textiles, Diane is constantly looking for new ways to interact with fiber. Taking a contemporary approach to traditional techniques, she experiments with materials to create pieces that add beauty to everyday lives. Her finished vessels embrace a love of texture and simplicity of design. Using natural fibers and found materials, she creates surfaces composed of subtle colours, textural elements and organic feel.
