The Textile Association of America will be holding its biennial conference in Vancouver 2018. In honor of this event the Italian Cultural Centre has planned to curate an exhibition featuring the work of BC textile artists. This exhibition will be entitled Women's Work and will feature the work of 20 female textile artists working in British Columbia. This is an invitation only exhibition.

The curator Angela Clarke chose the piece The Popess for me as an inspiration. This piece is the only selection in the exhibition which would represent a job a woman literally cannot have. This piece was from the Sforza Visconti Tarot was used for diviniation in the Italian court of the noble Sforza Visconti families.
