CONtINUUM - CEG London Celebrates 45 Years of Textile Art

CEG (Canadian Embroiderers' Guild), is a Textile arts Group, based in London, Ontario. We are happy that they are celebrating their 45th anniversary with a show at Strand Find Art Services, called CONtINUUM

Philosphy of CEG London
The philosophy of the Guild is that there are no limits to the materials used in modern embroidery and that embroidery is neither confined to fabrics alone, nor limited to surface decoration. CEG believes that embroidery is a fine art form and that there is no way to create art, and no single best way to work with fabric.

Show Runs: February 1- 28, 2017
Show Opening Reception: Sunday, February 5th, 2:00 - 5:00 PM

Strand Christmas Show and Sale

From the London Free Press, Dec 7 article by Joe Belanger:

On the canvas: Strand Fine Art Services annual Christmas Show and Sale

Strand Fine Art Services’ annual Christmas Show and Sale will feature works by artists from London and farther afield.

“The selection of work at this show is quite tantalizing,” said co-owner Andrew Smyth.

“Some of our regulars are back again this year — masters in oil painting (Price and Drysdale). Saddy’s bucolic acrylic landscapes are a welcome new addition. Vicki Easton McClung has a selection of mixed media collage works and greeting cards with a nostalgic mid-century vibe and a humorous twist. Thibert’s striking copper and tin ‘wall sculptures,’ Sari Teitelbaum’s elegant and playful jewellery, and Thelma Rosner’s iconic ‘Super Moons’ make for a visual treat.”

Smyth also noted Susan Day’s “fine colourful” vessels, Bill Stelpstra’s candle holders in bright colours and exotic hardwoods and Laney Richmond’s “happy flowers” are samples of the works in the show.
