News Flash

My Mom just phoned me from the gallery where the opening for Fibreworks 2012 is happening tonight. She told me the show looked great, and congratulated me on being one of the Honourable Mentions, which I had no idea of, and then said casually, "It's lovely they bought your piece." Shock. Total shock. I had no idea, since I haven't heard anything from the gallery yet. I promptly burst into tears and must have cried for a good 15 minutes, feeling unworthy (pathological, I know) and overwhelmed.  Francois-Marc Gagnon and Louis Nicolas: this is for you! Thank you God, for guiding my hand. Thank you dear readers, for your support and encouragement. And thank you, Chef. Couldn't have done it without you.

  3. Wonderful news, Heather, both of them. You certainly deserve the Honourable Mention and the more tangible recognition of selling your work.
    I am happy to know that there are people who appreciate the creativity, the committment and the hard work behind a piece of art.
    Congratulations, dear.

    Congratulations! Recognition is a nice thing. I hope the gallery will take good care of your work and display it often. I hope you are celebrating with a bottle of French champagne in honour of Louis Nicholas!

  9. I visited the exhibition on Tuesday and absolutely loved the opportunity to see your piece "in real". So wonderful, Heather.
    So pleased that you are now in the collection, which I believe is a very important one for contemporary textile art. Way to go!!

    I wrote about the exhibit on my blog.
