The Art of Fashion event in Deep Cove, North Vancouver, last weekend, was a huge success. 
Here are a couple of images, sent by Ros Aylmer.

Wendy Browne's new exhibition opens at FibreWorks Gallery in Pender Harbour on Saturday, April 7th, 2012. I had a sneak preview today. It is quite wonderful - a combination of painted and stitched, paper and fabric collages, some quite large and many smaller pieces - all of them framed. Image below shows a detail from one of the larger works.
Positive Fallout runs from April 7th to May 6th, 2012. For more information contact Yvonne at 604-883-2380. FibreWorks' website; Wendy's website.
