Just One More Moment 
Gallery Exhibition
by Kayla Walsh
When I sit looking out to the ocean, the darkness of my mind is forced out by the cold air on my face, the salt in my nose, the earth under my body, and the sounds of the waves crashing. I am forced into the now; worries about the future do not exist and obsessions about the past fade away for a few seconds at a time. Weaving and manipulating fabric with my body brings the same sense of peace I find sitting beside a roaring ocean. Every inch of thread must travel through my hands, demanding presence in dyeing, weaving, and embroidery. This process of creating with natural materials fully immerses me in the present moment. Woven into this body of work are countless threads of presence, each a mark on the journey of time. Sometimes the moments of presence are far apart, far away and seemingly out of reach but when I finally feel it, I beg for just one more moment.

Accessibility information: 
From the Water Street entrance: There is a set of glass doors (width of 48 inches). They lead into the main hallway of the building, where you will find the black double gate (width of 58 inches) leading to the Shop & Pantry on your immediate right, and a door leading to the Gallery ahead of you on the far right. Through the doors, you will find stairs and an elevator (the door is 31 inches wide) that will lead you to the second floor where the gallery is located. No entrances leading to the gallery have buttons to press to automatically open the doors and all require someone to physically (manually) open them at this time.
The washroom is just to the left of the elevator on the second floor. The doorways to the washroom are 36 inches wide and have a push button. The washroom is approximately 6 feet by 5 feet. The staff in both The Shop & Pantry and The Gallery are pleased to help you if you need assistance.
