Waynesville Outing

Our fiber group - PTA went to Waynesville yesterday to see the new exhibit by LINT (Ladies in New Textiles). We had lunch first and then entered mainstreet from a lot behind. The first thing we saw were these huge metal sculptures and of course it became "picture taking time". Here's Connie....and Mary.
And "Oh no" we didn't see this til after the fact - really, truly, honestly, we didn't!
We headed on over to the exhibit which is at the Haywood County Arts Council on Main Street in Waynesville, NC. It runs through April 30.
Here are my 3 pieces - part of a series on trees. I might add that this is national poetry month so a poem accompanied each artists work - a poem we liked or worked with our art. I chose Robert Frost's Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening - a poem I really like but also works well with my particular pieces.

Jude Stuecker created a very unique piece, a lifesize figure filled with her favorite things. Her poem of choice is printed on the piece - Change of Season by Audre Lorde. It's a wonderful piece to see upclose and personal.
Susan Lee created this wonderful, colorful abstract piece.

Mary Stori did this series featuring the four seasons. At one point I commented on the sparkle the thread gave in the "winter" piece - turns out to be beads and not thread - wonderful!

Janice Maddox created this next piece actually started at one of our PTA retreats. We had no idea where she was going with this, it turned out great!
Peggy DeBell is a quilt artist and also writes poety so she wrote the poem for this piece along with poems for several other pieces. Peggy works with recycled materials to create these wonderful collage pieces.
A great show and this is just a small sampling...hope you stop by.
