I had a most pleasant afternoon, on Saturday, April 4, attending the Opening of Fibre Art from the Heart, the current show at Greenwood Quiltery. It features the work of Donna Funnell, whose art quilts are recognized for their intense colour and creative embellishment with paint, threads and beads. We were so sophisticated, dahling, imbibing wine, nibbling on crackers and cheese, and discussing our creative endeavors while enjoying the display of Donna’s. The show runs until April 30, 2009.
Donna and I have come to know each other through various shows we’ve both entered. Donna has a quiet, modest way about her but she has a great deal of experience and expertise that becomes evident as you converse with her. I feel confident saying that taking a class taught by her would be well worth the investment.
My favorite piece in the show was “Another Door Opens.” This solo show should prove to be a door opener for further Funnell happenings.
