    Stitch Riff

    02 Jun 2021 – 31 Jul 2021

    The Stitch Riff exhibition threads together the work of local textile artists Stephanie Coburn, ReBecca Paterson, and Peggy Woolsey, who share a common passion for creative expression through cloth and fibre. These three artists compose with fabric and fibre media in different ways, moving through their various worlds of stitch, line, shape, colour, and construction. The vision for this show comes from thinking about the work of women’s hands over the last century. Coburn, Paterson, and Woolsey are inheritors of that history and practice, and will bring this show together to celebrate their connection to those women of the last century who took what chance they had to produce quilts and clothing of both beauty and use. Peggy Woolsey will display cloth printing using botanicals, or eco-printing, which has no harmful dyes or chemicals and is a developing new art form around the world. Stephanie Coburn’s work will explore traditional quilt making with her original patterns, and ReBecca Patterson will showcase contemporary techniques in working with textiles. Thanks to the New Brunswick Department of Tourism Heritage and Culture for their support of this exhibition.
