Kirsten Chursinoff: Low Tide

Kirsten Chursinoff has been working hard over the last few months to create new work for her upcoming show, Low Tide. As mentioned in a previous blog post, she’s a fibre artist who creates colourful scenes of nature using quilting and embroidering techniques. Her current work explores the theme of marine life found along the West Coast of BC.

From Kirsten’s press release:
With ‘Low Tide’ I’ve focused on the marine creatures found along the coast of British Columbia, especially at low tide, but also plunging a little deeper into our emerald sea – exploring the illustrative qualities of embroidery and art quilting.

The show opens Thursday June 17th from 6 to 8pm, at the Crafthouse Gallery on Granville Island. Kirsten will also be doing an artist talk on June 22nd at 7pm, with details below on how to RSVP to attend.
