Fantastic Fibers 2017


Fantastic Fibers opened this past Saturday in Paducah, Kentucky. I rarely get to see my work in situ for these events, nor my favorite fiber artists' that I admire virtually. It made the long journey worth the hours in the car. Note to self: Leave the dog home next time.


Yeiser Art Center is in the middle of everything, its red bull a standout.


Along Broadway there were lots of other things going on: weddings, prom night, a fashion show and preparations for this coming week's AQS Quilt Show Paducah.


Here is a sampling of the installation...didn't get every piece in, but a good representation of the breadth of styles and techniques that make contemporary textile art so engaging.
































I met lots of great people, some of the artists noted above and TAFA's (Textile and Fiber Art List) Rachel Biel.
