"thoughts with threads" exhibit


I love exhibiting at local galleries because being able to attend the opening receptions is a real treat. I've currently got work at the Northville Art House for the Thoughts with Thread exhibit.

The NAH is a fiber loving joint, as evidenced by the way they decided to decorate for the exhibit opening. They yarn bombed the front yard:




The place is dripping with yarn.

Inside, the show is extremely exciting. I was too busy talking to get shots of the whole exhibit but you can see quite a bit of the work here on Took's blog post.

And I was incredibly surprised and honor to see a Third Place ribbon hanging next to my entry:



And I got to meet the fabulous Jan Waller, an outstanding felter who won first place. Here she is beaming on Took's blog post (told you I was too busy talking to remember picture taking). Turns out we live incredibly close and the longer I read her blog and facebook page, I'm beginning to wonder if we were separated at birth, tons in common!

Its a really great show, such a wide variety of work representing the diversity of fiber. If you are in the area, do stop by and see it. It closes at the end of the month.
