2009 May 6 – Memorial Lecture – Jane Kenyon

April 24, 2009

Please join us for an exciting evening with Jane Kenyon on May 6th 2009 at Van Dusen Gardens’ Floral Hall at 7:30pm.

Jane’s topic is Fibre: An Obsession.

Jane was born in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada in 1953. She began her career as a medical doctor in 1979 and practiced in Saskatchewan for 11 years, however, she was always drawn to a career in the arts. After her two children were born, she made the decision to devote herself full-time to her family and her art.

For the past decade, Jane’s art medium has been focused on mixed media collage/assemblage on a hand dyed substrate textile (usually felt) and embroidery, both hand and machine, to create wall hangings and three-dimensional art. Currently, Kenyon is exploring the creation of cloth with stitch only, Thread Paintings.

Along with many years of study of weaving, painting, and printmaking, Jane earned an Art and Design for Embroidery Certificate from London, England.

This lecture is open to anyone interested in fibre art at no cost in our ongoing mandate to share our passion of fibre and textiles with the public.

Don’t miss this sure-to-be stimulating talk.
