The Lure of the Open Road, SDA Exhibition, Atlantis Framing, April 2014

Much of my artwork is exhibited in long term traveling exhibitions and as a result I rarely have photos of my work during exhibitions. I get myself so immersed in the creation process that I frequently forget to share my joy when the work becomes available for others to see. Check here to see where you can see my work ‘up close and personal!’ Don’t forget to check out the Fibre Art Network website for current and past exhibitions of work by my sister artists in western Canada.

Grandma Bella – Quilting/Assemblage

Although Grandma and Grandpa Mather were frequent visitors, especially for Sunday evening supper, they did not play as large a roll in my life as Granny Alice. As youngsters, we stayed with these grandparents for short periods during the summers and it was during these stays that I was able to take a few swimming lessons at the Perth swimming pool and actually take proficiency tests that allowed me to collect swimming badges! But,...

Edge of the Forest – Another Juried Show!

One of my goals for 2014 was to apply to as many juried shows as possible. I just heard from the Surface Design Association (SDA) show ‘Edge of the Forest : Exploring Perimeters’ and have yet another piece heading out for travels across Canada. This exhibition features work by Canadian members of the SDA and will open at the: Richmond Hill Centre for the Performing Arts (Ontario) and this show will run from March 1-30, 1915. John M.
