Exhibit 2013

In 2011, the Executive began to discuss the possibility of hosting an exhibit of members work. Various venues were considered such as the Mary Black Gallery. However, we chose to hold the exhibit at the Chase Gallery in the Nova Scotia Archives on University Avenue. We were able to obtain the space for the month of March 2013. We had 10 categories and each member could submit one piece in each category. It was agreed that there should be ribbons awarded in each category for first, second and third. The ribbons were woven by Daphne Trenaman and winners were chosen by the Standards Committee.  There were also 3 special ribbons awarded, 2 chosen by the Committee and the third by visitors to the exhibit. A list of the winners is here.

  • Mary Black Award of Excellence in Weaving - Joyce Chown, "Wavelength" yardage
  • Joan Thorne Award of Excellence in Spinning - Kristina Vermeulen, Mobius Cowl
  • People's Choice Award - Ray Meikle, "24 hours" hanging
