Pat and Penni Caffery

January 26 to March 7, 2017

MELANGE is an exhibition by a mother and daughter whose work uses fibre and textiles to create contemporary mixed media art.


Pat Caffery

My name is Pat Caffery. I am an artist, designer and teacher who has taught and exhibited for more than 20 years, including an exhibit in London, England as well as many juried shows in Toronto, Oakville, Cornwall, Ontario; Verona, Italy; Ogdensburg, N.Y., several other Ontario and US location. I have also participated in group shows in Ontario. A video of my solo show, Beneath the Surface, at the Shenkman Art Centre, Orleans, Ontario can be found on YouTube.

Many forms of fibre and textiles have been part of my life for many years and it is evident in my current work. I enjoy marrying the traditional and non-traditional techniques, fibres and textiles along with beads, plant materials and metals to create artwork that is both original and unusual.


Penni Caffery

My name is Penni Caffery. I have participated in group shows in Gannanoque, Stittsville and Belleville, Ontario. I enjoy working with fibres, textiles, photography and found objects to create original art.
