Friday Inspiration - Virtual Fiber Art Exhibits

If you're in the need of some inspiration for the new year, or just like to look at fiber art, I have three nice exhibits everyone can visit.  They're virtual so all you need is your computer!

Alicia Merrett, Cathedral Town, Harvest Time

The Studio Art Quilt Association (SAQA) currently has Come Sway With Me up, looking at the principle of design rhythm.  These pieces are wonderful!

Sommer Sheffield, Rugosa, reclaimed fabric, ink, and wire

The Maryland Federation of Art has a national juried exhibition of 71 works of art, Fiber Options: Material Explorations, on-line in a different type of virtual exhibit.  A camera pans around the exhibit room like you've just walked in and are taking stock of what's there.  Little cameras are placed on the pieces of art - clicking on one brings up a higher resolution picture and information on the artist.  This exhibit explores innovative use of materials.

Jackie Mirabel, Boboli, 2006.  Hand dyed and felted merino wool and silk.

 And go to Craft in America to view their fibers exhibit of 25 pieces from current and past artists.

Happy Creating!  Deborah
