Wesley Gallery Fiber Art and Textile Show


The Austin Fiber Artists are having a Fiber Art and Textile Show at the Wesley Art Gallery in Dripping Springs from June 20-22, 2008. The show will commence with an opening reception party on Friday, June 20 from 6-9 p.m. where wine and appetizers will be served. There will be a wonderful array of fiber arts displayed and demonstrations offered throughout the day on both Saturday and Sunday. Two of my pieces were juried into the show. They are Moroccan Play and A Leap of Faith. Moroccan Play is a surface design quilt incorporating Shiva oil painsticks, Lumiere acrylics and fibers. It is the backdrop for the invitation shown here. A Leap of Faith features a pieced and appliqued, quilted interpretation of planets using heat distressed plastics, sheers, acrylics, thread painted embroidery and swarovski crystals. If you have a chance, please stop by and visit the show. It is a fantastic opportunity to see the many types of fiber art that is being produced by fiber artists in metro Austin and promises to be a "feast for the eyes."

Your nature series is wonderful. I appreciate your notes on how you achieve the artistic and realistic effects on your quilts. Reading about your process shows the complexity of your work and gives me ideas of how to apply design concepts to my much simpler works. Thanks. Kathleen
