Four Seasons Exhibition – by Frances Prowse

Creative Fibre Wellington – Biannual Exhibition

at Bottlecreek Community Gallery, Pataka Art + Museum, Porirua until 1 March 2020

Sandra, Fiona, Caroline, Glenis, Florence, Caroline and myself have entered peices. There were nine entries in all from OFG with Caroline and Sandra entering multiple items. There are over 90 peices in a beautiful display. Such a lot of effort by so many people.

The exhibition had it’s official opening on Sunday. Fiona, Sandra, Audrey, Florence, Esther and myself attended the award ceremony on behalf of OFG.

Congratulations to Caroline for winning the Nancys Stitch Studio award, and to Glenis for winning the NZ Felters Award 3D. Glenis is also a first time entrant. Well done both of you! I accepted these awards on your behalf in your absence and will present at the next meeting (unless you’d like to collect prior.)
