Fibre art by Gayle Lobban.

Fibre Art Voices coming to the Pearl Ellis Gallery

The Pearl Ellis Gallery presents Fibre Art Voices: A Fine Line, a fibre art and mixed media exhibition, from July 17 to Aug. 4.

A reception will be held Saturday, July 28 from 1 to 3 p.m. with artists in attendance. Everyone is welcome.

Fibre Art Voices is a small, spirited group of forward-thinking visual artists from the Comox Valley. They come together to support and encourage one another in expressing a creative voice through fibre.

Diverse backgrounds in art and a passion for textiles enable the collective to work with an extensive variety of mediums and techniques to create individual stories, rich in design, colour and texture. Through the love of textiles, they challenge each other individually and as a group, and share the energy and inspiration gained from living in the West Coast environment.

Members of the group include Gail Tellett, Gayle Lobban, Gladys Love, Hennie Aikman, June Boyle, Karrie Phelps, Margaret Kelly and Pippa Moore.

The Pearl Ellis Gallery is located at 1729 Comox Avenue. Open Tuesday-Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., closed Sunday/Monday.; admission is free. For more information about the gallery, and to see a virtual display of the exhibition, visit pearlellisgallery.com.
