Sandra Brownlee wins G.G. (Saidye Bronfman) award!

I have big news! Sandra Brownlee is the winner of the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts. She joins such textile luminaries as Kai Chan, Dorothy Caldwell, and Susan Warner Keene in winning this prestigious award, formerly known as the Saidye Bronfman award. An exhibition featuring five of her major pieces opens at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, Ontario on March 27.
Those living in the Toronto area, will have an opportunity to take in a solo exhibition of her work at the David Kaye Gallery from May 1 to 25, 2014, and the opening is on Saturday May 3 from 2 to 4 pm. 

Sandra will also teach her Tactile Notebooks and the Written Word workshop at the Contemporary Textile Studio Co-operative from May 5 to 9, 2014. Space is limited to 12 participants. I took this workshop in 2011 and it transformed my studio practice. This is an opportunity not to be missed. For more information contact

Well deserved. And yes, time spent with Sandra IS life changing
If it's simply a walk in the woods
