A Gathering Place for Expression: The Elizabeth Bishop Festival Market

One of the main events of the Elizabeth Bishop Festival taking place in Great Village on 8 August 2015 is the Festival Market, where over a dozen artists and artisans will gather to share their creations. This post is a profile of textile artist Cathy Mazur.

Cathy Mazur was born in Amherst, N.S., and is now a new resident to Great Village, after spending forty-one years working in Northern British Columbia. Nova Scotia kept calling her home.

Cathy has always had an appreciation for art, especially the quirky and whimsical. An accomplished quilter, potter, genealogist and gardener, she will try her hand at anything.
All forms of art are considered therapy to her. Non-traditional designs and bright colours bring happiness to her demeanor.
