“Meadowood Stitched” exhibition to open at DSBG

One hallway where “Meadowood Stitched” is exhibited
Today we hung the “Meadowood Stitched,” exhibition at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden near Charlotte. This is the work of Fiber Art Options, a group of fiber artists in the Charlotte area to which I belong. It is a beautiful venue. This is the second year we have exhibited our work here. The exhibition officially opens tomorrow, and Nancy will be there demonstrating how she creates her work. 

P.J. Howard was among the first of us to arrive. Does she look prepared, or what? I love her t-shirt; it says, “I make stuff.”


We got to work. First we laid out all the pieces on the floor, and decided what should go where. Then we hung the pieces and took a preliminary look. Here is DeLane hanging her lovely felted wool piece:
 

After determining correct placement, P.J. and Janet Lasher measured to make sure that the pieces were all hanging at the right height:

  1. That is going to be a wonderful show, amazing works of art and the use of fabrics in textures in those pieces is amazing.

  2. I'm definitely going to have to get over there to see all of this fabulous work in person! May I ask what the piece by Janet Lasher is made from. It looks like pottery, but I'm guessing knowing her that's perhaps something else.

  3. Hi, Deb! Janet's vessel is made from cast paper, and decorated with hand-cut paper (the grass and chairs).
