For the month of March Studio 2880 is pleased to present “Phantazein”; a wonderful exhibit that utilizes the beautiful plants and colours found in nature. Feature Gallery Artist Barb Ramsay shares her stunning eco prints and plant dyed silk designs through reflective textiles and organic processes.
“My love of working with textiles and spending time with nature have come together to inspire this work. I have lived in several communities in northern British Columbia and Ontario so nature is never far away.”
“Local plant material has been bundled into silk fabric to create colour and designs using natural dyeing techniques. Traces of the plants and their hidden characteristics can sometimes be seen. The images created are not representative but have a suggestion of organic forms & are open to the interpretation of the viewer.”
“I hope my work portrays the beauty and fragility of our natural world”, Barb eloquently states. Be inspired by how Barb incorporates natural elements into her exquisite art form. Join us for the opening Wednesday March 1st between 12pm to 2pm for a brief artist talk, early viewing and get a chance to speak to the Barb about her process.
The exhibit will be on display in the feature gallery area from March 1st 2023 thru to March 28th 2023 during regular gift shop/gallery hours at Studio 2880.
Studio 2880, 2880 15th Ave, Prince George, BC.
