Our next member meeting April 19 via ZOOM will feature Guest Speaker Lorraine Roy presenting: Call of the Heartwood: My Creative Journey with Trees
Textile artist Lorraine Roy will present her artistic journey in words and pictures as she describes how trees wove their way into her art and her heart. Lorraine will describe the variety of non-traditional fabric and thread techniques that have evolved over her 30-year career, and will present a trunk (slide) show of current pieces.
A horticulturalist by training from University of Guelph, Lorraine uses current scientific research in horticulture and forestry as a main inspiration for her framed and quilted artworks. This lecture will appeal to artists of all stripes, environmentalists, gardeners, and anyone who exalts in the presence of trees.
