Wearable Art Show in Asheville

I wanted to give you a heads up for a new exhibit which just opened at the Folk Art Center in Asheville, NC. The exhibit is "New Traditions - Wearable Art" and runs through January 15, 2011. Members of the Southern Highland Craft Guild have created wearables as well as accessories for this wonderful show. Nikki Josheff, heads up exhibits at the Folk Art Center and does a beautiful job. Each piece is carefully considered and placed in the perfect spot. I've been twice already and have seen such interesting pieces - nuno felted tops, hats, naturally dyed fabric made into garments, silk screened garments, crocheted baby gowns, bags made from recycled materials, wonderful jewelry, the list goes on. I have a piece in the show - below. It was created for the Fairfield Fashion Show a while back; it's white wool with extensive cutwork made from hand-dyed rayon.

Hope you can stop by and see it; it will be around for a while.
