Fiber Works is a group of twelve very talented quilt artists who reside in eastern Nebraska: Dorothy Heidemann-Nelson, Roxann O'Hare, Sheila Green, Peg Pennell, Marilyn Rembolt, Karen Murphy, Jo Drueke, Merrilee Hansen, Cynthia Levis, Cindi Pape, Lynne O'Rourke, and Pat Stava. Artist elinor peace bailey is an honorary member.
An exhibition of some of their recent fiber artwork, Color Flow & elinor peace bailey Characters, is on display from September 11- November 1, 2014 at the Seward Civic Center-Langworthy Gallery, 616 Bradford St., Seward, NE. The show is open 7:00 am - 4:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
Hubby and I took a little road trip Sunday afternoon, September 14, 2014, to attend the opening reception. So today I will share some photos from the Color Flow section of the show. Later this week, in Fiber Works - Part 2, I will share some of the elinor peace bailey Characters artwork.
Color Flow is a series of individual fiber art pieces, mounted on canvas, and arranged in rainbow color order to create a composite art installation. Each member created one color-themed panel:
The result was stunning! The whole truly was greater than the sum of its parts -- and the parts, in themselves, were stand-alone works of art!
Here is a shot from the other direction. (That's Jerry in the Huskers sweatshirt.)
Here are some of the artists:
And here are some close-ups of the detailed embellishment and quilting:
Notice the beautiful beading and intricate machine quilting on the Red panel.
Hand-dyed vintage crochet was incorporated into the orange panel -- love the juxtaposition of modern and vintage.
And here is a close-up of the embellishment and tiny patchwork from the yellow-green panel.
It's a Manic Monday -- so TTFN!
