Gloria S. Daly
March 14 – May 20, 2017
Vernissage: Saturday, March 18 from 2pm to 4pm
In “Blanket Statement: No Shame in Patches”, Gloria Daly from Duncan BC gives discarded blankets a new public image, using today’s philosophy of “recycling.” The works are a contemporary take on mending, patching and darning. The layered cloth in the works allows worn and weathered fibres to have dignity as they record the changes in temperature, the ravages of rust, and the tints and tones of tarnish and stain. This exhibit celebrates the 150th anniversary of industrial blankets woven in the Mississippi Valley.
