The Reunion by Hélène Blanchet
The Reunion is a framed textile wall hanging by self-taught folk artist Hélène Blanchet. She combines traditional textile techniques (such as quilting, embroidery, appliqué, reverse-appliqué, beading, and stumpwork) with a hand-painted frame to extend the scene onto the border.
Hélène Blanchet specializes in colourful art quilts made by hand and brings her stories to life in the minutia of detail featured in every piece. The more one looks, the more the story unfolds to reveal delightful scenes of the everyday. Her unique, award-winning quilts have been exhibited nationally and internationally and are represented in several galleries in Nova Scotia.
