I am nearly ready for my art show “50 Yarns of Lyme – The Lyme Dis-Ease Series” .
This collection will feature 50 different fibre art pieces portraying my journey with Lyme Disease. I hope to show the value of creating art in the healing process. Traditional quilts, contemporary art quilts, 3D fibre pieces, abstract and mixed medial pieces will all be represented at the show.
I have just “hung” a piece called “A Shadow of My former Self” This two sided whole cloth quilt hangs from a 7 foot hangman frame and represents the depth of destruction that Lyme wages on its victims leaving them just a shadow of their former selves. The morgue-like toe tags are pretty on one side because some Lyme patients “look fine” but the reverse outlines the destruction the disease assaults on your body.
Everyone is invited to join me on Saturday April 8th at St. Alban’s Parish Hall – 703 Ellice Street Moosomin, Sk. to see my work. The viewing times are from 11 AM to 5 PM. There is no charge for admission. http://www.laceflowerdesigns.com
