Be sure to click on any picture to see a closer view of all.
Nike Cutsumpas's, Tinsel Tower. Hard to tell from the photo, but it has a lots of glitz and beads.
Cindy Green, who works in a library, used parts of old books for her piece, The Golden Door. It was all made of paper.
Barbara Drillick's piece, Five Rooms With a View, used different types of window screening. It had wonderful perspective and it looked as if you were at ground level, looking up. Being a sheer piece, I thought that the brick wall it was hung on interfered with the piece, but it still looked great.
This is mine, Midnight City. Instead of doing the tedious piecing that I usually do, I fused this one, but I'm not sure if it was any less tedious.
The other show at The Nest was a juried show, SPUN. It was held in The Nest's gallery. Again I'm only showing a very few.
Bear Fruit by John Paradiso. This was a 10 inch square and the stitches were amazingly small. Details below. Go here to see more of his work.
Anasazi Roadways by Kathie Kerler. I think it was a whole cloth that was then painted or printed and then beautifully machine and hand stitched, as seen below.
A fun 3-D piece by Sooo-z Mastropietro, whose work seems to be in every show I go to lately.
I'm so sorry that I didn't get the name of this artist. It had an incredible amount of machine stitching and then hand stitching on top.
Both shows will be at The Nest, which is a factory that has been turned into artist's studios. There was an amazing amount of art hung in all the hallways. The day that we were there was also Open Studio and I always like to see how artists work.
i'm linking up with Off the Wall Friday.
