Quinte Fibre Artists
  "Seeking the Light "
From October 29 to November 26
 Belleville Public Library, third level 
 254 Pinnacle St., downtown Belleville, ON

Meet the artists at the opening reception on Thursday,
October 29, from 6 to 7:30 pm.
Returning for their seventh biennial exhibition, this year with a selection of art which promises to be a celebration of the interplay of colour and texture with light. Originally formed by Joan Reive
and Jane Sheppard as an adjunct to the Belleville Art Association, around 1986, the group has kept their numbers small to enable meeting in each others homes, to support and learn from each other. This 2015 evolution of the group consists of 12 members: Joan Reive, Ann Fales, Sabina McLuhan, Marianne Sanders, Pat Sztuke, Mary Andrews Minigan, Carol Peterson, Marta Smith, Marion Casson, Bethany Garner, Karen Kaiser and Marta Mouka. 
Mary Andrews Minigan describes the Quinte Fibre Artists as: “...a diverse group of artists,  working variously with fabrics and fibres using dyes, paints and techniques, including felting, hooking, doll making, quilting and needlework.”  

And of course, we will have a delightful display of Manly MacDonald paintings on display in Gallery Three, some amazing local photography in the corridor, some fabric art by our local fibre artists and an ever-changing selection of local fine crafts in the Parrott Gallery Shop.
