Friday Inspiration - Summer 2014 Exhibitions

There are two exhibitions on opposite sides of the US that if you're anywhere near would be worth taking a look at!  

The first is a 40 year retrospective showing of Margaret Cusack's fiber art at the Brooklyn Public Library's Central location.  Margaret works in quilts, appliqued fabric works, embroidered pieces - even voodoo dolls!  And you may have seen her work even if you don't usually frequent fiber art exhibits.  Her art has illustrated everything from magazine covers and advertisements to children's books.  The show runs through September 21, 2014.

And San Diego's Visions Art Museum is the first stop on the American Tapestry Biennial 10 tour.  Tapestry is about the one fiber art I've never tried my hand at, although I'm fascinated with it and love viewing tapestry exhibits.  This tour features 37 contemporary works (out of 230 submitted).  If you miss it in San Diego (runs until July 20), it travels to Kent State University in Kent, Ohio September 25, 2014 through January 4, 2015 and then on to The Kaneko in Omaha, Nebraska February 6 - April 24, 2015.

Happy Creating!  Deborah
