Event Description

National fibre art exhibition comes to Victoria

A stunning display of quilts, felting, weaving and other fibre art from across Canada will be showcased in Victoria as part of a national touring exhibition opening this Spring.

The 2021 Grand National Fibre Art Exhibition is hosted by the Victoria Arts Council and is on view at 1800 Store Street from 16 March – 22 May. Juried by award-winning artists Tracey Aubin, Debora Barlow and Judy Villett, the exhibition features 48 fibre art pieces interpreting the theme, Crossroads.

The Grand National was developed in 2003 to showcase the incredible creativity of Canadian quilt artists and has since expanded to include a wide variety of fibre art materials and technique.

This year marks a milestone for the exhibition, which is travelling across the country for the very first time. This is the only presentation of this exhibit in British Columbia.

Related programming such as Artists in Conversation will take place in April and May. More details will be made available online at VicArtsCouncil.ca

**If you are interested in volunteering with the Victoria Arts Council to gallery-sit for Crossroads, please contact us.**
