Thanks to my daughter, Jessica, an artist in her own right (http://www.flyngypsyarts.com/), I was made aware of the Fine Art of Fiber show at the Chicago Botanic Garden this weekend. We made a day of it, yesterday, and enjoyed the output of Weavers Guild of the North Shore, Illinois Quilters, Inc., and North Suburban Needle Arts Guild members, as well as the fall gardens. You can see more about the show at http://www.fineartoffiber.org/ and http://www.chicagobotanic.org/fiber/index.php.
Here are a few of my pictures from the show:
Debby Danford Wada gave a fascinating lecture on Japanese textiles.
Art dolls, jewelry, hand bound books, and felted items.
Jessica's favorite quilt in the show.
A selection of the diversity of styles and techniques shown.
Some of the wonderful woven items.
All in a beautiful setting.
All in all, it was a wonderful day and show. I am already looking forward to the next one. Lots of inspiration and beauty all around. I hope you have enjoyed this glimpse into the experience.
Until next time, may you experience peace and all good.
