Articulation At The Whyte



This is the text panel at the entrance to Articulation's work in the Whyte Museum, Banff
With Vickie Newington's 2 works beside it - see below



In front of the entrance is this red wall with Gloria S Daly's work



Gloria S. Daly, 'Glacier', 42" x 38"
Gloria was inspired by A. C. Gault's sketch called 'Mountain Monsters', in the book 'Rocky Mountain Madness' by Edward Cavell & Jon Whyte. Indigo dyed cotton and silk rushing is hand embroidered with a zillion french knots and machine quilting.



Vickie Newington
 (top) 'Ice and Stones,' 17" x 20", glass, mohair wool - hand felting, glass fusion
Vickie describes this work, "As the mountain starts to warm up and come alive in the spring, the edges of the ice on the lakes retreats, exposing interesting stones."
(bottom) 'Ice Water,' 22" x 24", fused glass, polyester, wool mohair - glass fusing, machine embroidery, hand felting
Vickie describes this work,"The spring breakup in the mountains brings texture and reflection to the water and  the ice.
These 2 works are beside the text panel.
More Articulation work to come.
