Call of The Wild

 The Art In Fiber 2011 Show will be held at The Copper Shade Tree Gallery in Round Top, Texas. You are cordially invited to the Opening Night Reception has been changed to Saturday, February 5th, 2011 from 2 p.m. - 6 p.m. Refreshments and wine will be served. There are 22 artists represented in this show that will continue through March 12, 2011. The theme is "Interpretation." Each artist was given a specific subject matter; a 3-D art piece, a poem, or a music selection to interpret and create an 11X14 fiber artwork. Artists who based their work on 3-D artwork entitled "Forest Floor" by Gerald Tobola include Letitia Rogers, Cindy Henneke, Andrea Brokenshire, Lana Book, Jo Sweet, Laura Ann Beehler, Janet Moran and Barbara Nilsson. Those creating artwork based on a poem by David



Eastern Bluebird

Meischen include Barb Forrister, Leslie Tucker Jenison, Suzanne Selb White, Fannie Narte, Kate Owens, Annie Smith and Debbie Geistweidt. Finally, artists selected to create their artwork based on a music arrangement by the Copperleaf Quintet include Martha K. Grant, Martha Tsihlas, Gay Ousley, Jack Brockette, Connie Fahrion, Suzan Engler and Margery Hedges. Moonshadow is my interpretation piece based on the poem. Should be interesting to see how folks interpreted each of the three! The show was juried by Ginny Eckley and promises to be a wonderful and engaging. Come meet the artists on Friday evening. We are a very lively group and would love to see you! Please visit http://coppershadetree.com/index.php to learn more.

I love Call of the Wild and Moon Shadow. I think they are my new favorites!

Barb Forrister said...

Thanks, Dee! We must have the same taste! They are some of my favorites, too! Am keeping my fingers crossed that they will find a new home with someone who appreciates them. In any case, I am just happy to share my work.

Hi Barb, I saw your beautiful work at the Copper Shade Tree Gallery show Feb. 5th. Sorry I didn't get to meet you. I love the color and texture of your work. I was one of the fiber artists also.
