CrossroadsOct 10, 2019 - Nov 16, 2019

Contact: BettyAnn Martin 604.392.8000
E-Mail: cvaa.publicity@gmail.com
Website: http://www.oconnorgroupartgallery.com
Description:

Crossroads presents the artworks by Karlie Norrish McChesney. Karlie’s art making frequently explores her love of perspective and structural form.  Her art practice requires much measuring, calculating and arranging of colour, so much so that her work is a form of puzzle solving. Her preferred medium is fibre in the form of stitched textiles with an element of mixed media applied to the surface or standing as an installation accompanying the 2D work; these materials include paint, paper, plastic, metal, clay, and/or wood. This body of work is her response to a time of great change in her life, where many decisions were required. All the pieces of work contain a path representing the choices a person has available to them and a container representing the restrictions or parameters that influence the decision making process. Karlie is a retired art teacher from the Chilliwack School District.  She is an active member in SAQA (Studio ArtQuilts Association), FAN (Fibre Art Network) and in the CVAA (Chilliwack Visual Artists Association). This is Karlie’s first solo exhibition and she is very excited to share it with you. She invites everyone to join her at the opening reception on October 12, 2019 from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the O’Connor Group Art Gallery, 9201 Corbould Street, Chilliwack, B.C.  The exhibition runs from October 10 to November 16. Gallery hours are 12:00 noon to 5:00 pm, Wednesday to Saturday, as well as 6:30 – 7:00 pm preceding evening theatre performances.  Admission is free.
