Anna Hergert Art Quilt Gallery Opening

The weather was spectacular: one of those glorious BC summer days: blue sky, hot sunshine, no rain even on the horizon………so a perfect day to hop on a BC ferry and make my way  with a ” like-minded” friend up the Sunshine Coast of BC to the “Meet the Artist” Gallery Opening of Anna Hergert’s “Riches of my Soul” exhibition.

Together with her art quilts, Anna had lovely cards available for sale: each one was a snapshot of a section of one of the quilts in the exhibition: this one above is part of “Give me Time Forever”  where she had highlighted with stitching the feather shapes that were created in her fabric hand dying process.

This one was part of the magnificent work entitled “Morning has broken”.

Cat Stevens music was quietly playing in the background as we absorbed the artwork.  I am guessing it formed part of her inspiration for the particular works on display.

The exhibition was held at the Fibre Works Gallery at Madiera Park, BC.  I picked this link as it shows lovely pics of the yurts in which the gallery and classroom etc is housed. These semi-permanent structures are certainly gaining popularity. Thank you, Reg & Yvonne for hosting such a lovely event and for those delicious snacks: I don’t believe I have ever seen such large cherries, nor had I tasted water melon served with rosewater and sea salt – lovely!

Anna Hergert is a Janome Artisan and uses a Janome Horizon 7700QCP during the course of creating some of her incredible artistic work.
