Wild Fabrications

My FiberWorks group hung our show this Friday at the Newtown Library. Our theme, Wild Fabrications, was interpreted so differently by our members and I thought it was one of our best shows ever. We are a diverse group that encompasses art quilters, weavers, multi-media and encaustic. All pieces were 30" square. We were in a different place in the library this year, the genealogy room, which is no longer used for that purpose. I thought that it gave us more of a gallery space and we were able to move the screens around to our advantage.

Nike with her graphic artist background, always designs our poster and I always have it enlarged and then put on foam core. We decided that I would do a fabric collage around the edges, instead of the colored papers I usually do. I fully intended to cut off the edges when done, but I decided that I liked the jagged edges. I gave them three coats of acrylic medium to make them stiff.

Barbara Drillick always makes the artist statement cards and did her usually stellar job this year.I will make no comments on the quilts but will let each artist statement speak for itself.

The opening for the show is this coming Sunday from 3 to 4 and the show will be up until October 26. Please stop by if you can. You know that everything always looks better in person.

I am linking up with Off the Wall Friday.

Please click on any picture for a bigger view and perhaps to read the statements better.
