Quilts galore at Mary E. Black.
  • Quilts galore at Mary E. Black.

Even though the weather's getting warmer Mary E. Black Gallery is cozying up with members of Studio Art Quilt Associates, Inc., an international non-profit organization aimed at promoting art quilting via exhibition and education, world-wide. Rooted

features the intricate works of twenty-three members of Atlantic Canada's contingent of SAQA, who've all interpreted the theme in various ways. This showcase of local quilt art is a timely one, too because quilters from across the country will be wrapped up in Halifax on May 29 for Seams Like Home, the Canadian Quilters' Association's national five-day conference packed with classes, events and exhibits. Rooted opens to the public Friday, April 20 at 6pm.

April 20-June 10, Mary E. Black Gallery, 1061 Marginal Road, 492-2522
