I recently joined California Fiber Artists - a group of about 35 fiber artist in California who exhibit, that is the focus. The first show of the year just opened. I was not there for the opening reception but Tom and I will be dropping by this week This gallery is in the arts district. We are lucky that most cities have one.
This is my piece in the show - it is 12" by 60". The base is cotton with layers of silk organza and commercial japanese handmade papers. I screen printed the line images of flowers and folage on the base fabric and on organza. I ran the paper through my Epson color printer. It is machine stitched and embellished. It is like looking out a window, what you might see.
At the opening the artist attending gathered and spoke. Notice my piece in right behind them - yeah.
