THE FIBRE CONTENT TEAM IS FEATURING 2014 EXHIBITION ARTISTS AT THEIR FACEBOOK PAGE... artwork above by Albert Cote...
(*** Have a peek by clicking on the link above - great photos and information!)

Well the submission rush is done......thanks for all your wonderful entries and to celebrate we thought we would revisit some of the artists that were part of the Fibre Content 2014 show.

First up is Al Cote!!
Al is a member of SAQA Central Canada and lives in the Niagara Region. He likes curved piecing, raw edge appliqué, painting on fabric and collage using found objects. He loves working with silks, wools, velvets, and upholstery fabrics as well as cotton and does not like high realism pieces.

Al describes his piece from the FC 2014 show......
I have heard people talk about the cooing sounds of morning doves in their backyards welcoming them to a brand new day. Each day I listen ....but only hear the screeching sounds of the black crows in my backyard. I have come to enjoy them and marvel at their natural curiosity which inspired me to create this piece and show them in a beautiful bright environment.
Using hand dyed wools, silks and cottons with curved piecing and raw edge Applique, I gave the Crows a whimsical setting.

They were honoured by gracing the cover of the Fiber Content 2014 brochure!
