I had the pleasure of meeting and visiting fiber artist Gloria Daly in her lovely Duncan, B.C. studio this spring. Using old blankets, she was busy creating works of art for an upcoming exhibit titled, “Blanket Statement: No Shame in Patches”. When I find old wool blankets the rug hooker in me wants to immediately cut them into hookable strips. It was so interesting to see another artist’s vision and process. Gloria uses a wide range of fiber and surface design techniques as evidenced by the number of highly skilled,beautiful creations that fill her studio. I thought it was inspiration worth sharing. Thank you Gloria!
The “Blanket Statement: No Shame in Patches” exhibit is scheduled for the Mississippi Valley Textile Museum, Almonte, Ontario in 2017. More information and a gallery of Gloria Daly’s other work can be found on her website, Studio G Art.
