Fiber Fusion Artists’ Talk Sunday

Our very successful traveling exhibition, Fiber Fusion, is now at the halfway point. It opened at the Northwind Arts Center in Port Townsend on February 2.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you are in for a treat—a great number of beautiful, intriguing, witty and questioning works in fiber! In neutral to vibrant colors! In all sizes! 2- and  3-D!

As part of the exhibition, you are invited to an artists’ talk and presentation on Sunday, February 12 from 1 to 2 p.m.

11-13-15 Dinner at La Belle Equipe Smoke Dress by Jeannie McMacken

Jeannie McMacken will introduce us to her ephemeral piece, “11-13-15  Dinner at La Belle Equipe Smoke Dress.” This is Jeannie’s emotional response to the recent terrorist attack in Paris. To express her horror and grief Jeannie experimented with unexpected materials, and presents us with a very moving work.
