A local church occasionally has fiber/fabric related exhibits that feature local artists/artisans. So of course a friend and I had to check out the latest one after lunching out. It turned out we know two of the exhibitors.
The items on display ranged from quilts (traditional and art) to fabric painting to ecclesiastical banners. And in between were embroidered items and felted knit purses. Here are some of the pieces that caught my eye (and camera.)
The first two are by Connie Bloom, a local art quilter.
The next two are by Janet Bryant.
The work below by Joyce Feucht is called stump work, a most unappealing term for incredibly detailed, labor intensive handwork. Each of these pieces is about 6 inches high.
If you’re in the area, the exhibit will be on display until January 3, 2013, at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio.
