Current Threads features work by 22 artists from the Vancouver Island chapter of the Surface Design Association. The Surface Design Association was founded in 1977 and has grown to become an International group of nearly 4000 textile artist members. Many members have been recognized and awarded prizes, have published in magazines, authored books, and teach and exhibit across Canada, USA, UK, Europe and Australia.

�Surface design� refers to the colouring, patterning and structuring of fibre and fabric. This involves the creative exploration of many different processes such as: dyeing, painting, printing, stitching, embellishing, quilting, weaving, knitting, felting and papermaking. Many conceptual frameworks inform the artists� work such as socio-economic issues, historic or political contexts, as well as natural processes and the natural environment. Artists in the group seek to inspire creativity, encourage innovation and advocate for artistic excellence in textile inspired art and design.

Participating artists: Barbara McCaffrey, Dale MacEwan, Diana Caleb, Donna-Fay Digance, Elserine Sprenger, Gillian Smith, Gloria S. Daly, Jo Ann Allan, Joanna Rogers, Judi MacLeod, Karen Selk, Kristin Rohr, Lesley Comassar, Lesley Turner, Linda Wallace, Margie Preninger, Marny Stevenson, Morag Orr-Stevens, Shannon Wardroper, Susan Duffield, Susan Purney Mark, Terri Bibby.

This exhibition underscores Nanaimo Art Gallery�s commitment to showcasing excellent work in diverse media by artists from our region.
