Doukhobor Shawl Art Cards
The Second Series - a Special Event at the Mir Centre
On November 24, 2010 the MIR Centre in Castlegar was
the venue for the unveiling of the second series of Art Cards
featuring traditional Doukhbor Shawls. Present at the celebration
were members of the USCC Cultural Interpretive Society, along
with featured artists Mary Makortoff, Helenne Jones, Lisa Poznikoff
and Anne Nazaroff, as well as family members and friends.
A memorial tribute was made to another Doukhobor fibre artist,
Vera Samarodin, who kindly allowed her artistic hand-embroidered
shawls to be photographed for the enjoyment of future generations.
Proceeds from the first series of Art Cards, featuring Laura Verigin's
shawls, provided the C.I.S. with enough resources to produce this
second series. These cards feature original borders designed and
embroidered by each participating artist and were photographed by
Society member Lola Sherstobitoff.
Price: $5.00 each or 6 for $25.00. Your support will enable the C.I.S. to produce a third series -- a documentation of shawls from our historical past.
