Marden Senior College Exhibition

It has been the most busy week for me - Marden Senior College Art Exhibition on Thursday night then Saturday and Sunday I attended the Adelaide Quilt and Craft Show - both demonstrating RAw Edge Collage and giving floor talks for the "Beneath the Southern Sky" exhibition which was extremely well received indeed. And then on Monday a very long day with work, a dinner with the Certificate 1V students and the our meeting of FAN (Fibre Artist Network). The FAN meeting was extremely well attended - 42 of us discussed what's on, showing work etc - all to do with Textiles - a great day and a very tired Suzanne here who was not very functional the next day.

Last Thursday night was Marden Senior College Art Exhibition where my students exhibited their textiles. It was a wonderful night with about 300+ people enjoying the displays. The staff also exhibited in their our  room - it was excellent to see other teachers art works.
And the student work was also wonderful - well done all!!!

Certificate 1V students will exhibit their final works at Pepper Street Gallery in late March and April 2013 so watch this space for information 

I will post a few of the displays in the next posts
