The Liminal Project

From March 17 - 23, I was in St. John's Newfoundland for the installation and opening of my solo exhibition The Liminal Project.  This exhibition will be up until April 25th, at Devon House (Craft Council of NL), at 59 Duckworth Street, St. John's, in the Annex Gallery.

The opening was a great success, both for my exhibition and the larger group exhibition Wild Pure Aesthetic Wonder (all fibre art as well) - both galleries were packed with people!  Wonderful to have such wonderful support and encouragement from the Craft Council of NL, including fabulous gallery coordinator, Sharon Lariche.

While in St. John's I took the time to document my work with our good camera (ie - not my iPhone).  Below is a record of almost all my pieces which comprise The Liminal Project. (*all images copyright Rilla Marshall, 2015)
