My aunt always said I was the one who would jump into the deep end of the pool. Not during swimming lessons at the local pool, of course — there, I was nearly always the last one in, and hated every minute of the mandatory summer lessons. But when it comes to things that really interest me, I am apt to go ‘from zero to sixty’ very quickly. So I guess it’s no surprise that when I attended my first gallery opening the other day, I was there as one of the artists!
It was a delight to meet and mingle with the other artists, including the lovely and talented Surface Design Association. Karen’s hand-woven fiber art uses many surface design techniques to achieve subtle color and rich texture. We’re shown here with Karen’s After the Rain, a stunning piece which graced the postcards for this show, but is even more amazing in real life!
As a former basket weaver I also loved the sculptural baskets by Tamara Wight. Notice two wonderful baskets by Tamara in the center of the photo at the right, but you’ll delight in discovering more all around the gallery if you stop by for a visit!
The fiber art exhibit at Creative Space Gallery runs through November 13, 2010. Current gallery hours on Thursday, Friday and Saturday are listed on the Gallery’s web site. I hope you get a chance to stop by!
