Meet the Artists | May 2016

SUNDAY, MAY 29TH, 2016
1:00 – 4:00 PM

Homer Watson House & Gallery invites you to participate for an exciting artist talk with Connections Fibre Artists. Sharron Deacon Begg, along with other members, will be providing tours for their exhibit, Celebrate the Seven. This group has created beautiful quilts & fibre pieces in honour of the Group of Seven. They will share with patrons both their visual art techniques and inspirations.

“I am an award winning artist and have called myself ‘Threadpainter’ for many years, as it helps explain what I do … fibre art, using my ‘elderly’ sewing machine as my easel, the machine needle is my brush and threads are my paint. I strive for simplicity and feel successful when viewers respond to the spirit of my work.”

-Sharron Deacon Begg

During this event, we also have our annual Community Appreciation Day! There will be activities with the summer instructors, BBQ, and discounts up to 15% for summer camps.
