Last year, I recommended that fellow River City Quilters' Guild member Kim Brownell submit her art to the Taking Textiles Seriously art show at Side Show Studios. She kindly returned the favor with a unique opportunity for me!
I was flattered to be one of five artists invited to participate in the Fibertastic Textile Show at Kim's daughter's school, the Creative Connections Arts Academy in North Highlands. This charter school's mission is "to inspire students to extraordinary achievement every day through arts." Each month, the school features a different medium in their on-campus art gallery, the Dragon's Lair.
Today, we hung our art for this show. Here is a photo of some of my pieces - fabric wall hangings created from batiks, and of course, my Evie's Ark organic catnip toys!
Here's fellow artist, Cy Wylie, doing her best "bunny face" next to her dryer lint and block stamp art hangings!
Kim poses next to her art.
This piece was created by another RCQG member, Lisann Spencer.
Here's the wall mural outside of the Dragon's Lair Art Gallery - very cool!
Later in the month, we'll do a demonstration for the students who attend this one-of-a-kind school. Can't wait!
