This evening was the opening of Connecting Concept & Medium: SC Fiber Artists at the Pickens County Museum. It's a varied and interesting show, and I was honored to have been selected to participate. I saw some old friends and met new ones, and there were some surprises as familiar artists have branched out into new directions. It was hard to position myself in the throng to take pictures, but here are a few I manged to snap.
Terry Dimond's dyed, pieced and stitched hanging:
Beth Melton, Thin Air, thread, spindles, and shuttles from former mills in South Carolina:
Christina Laurel and her woven paper fans:
Susan Lenz and her special installation:
Connie Lippert (in a surprise departure from her customary wedge weave) Stop Trashing the Planet, composed of bottlecaps and reclaimed plastic bags:
Jim Arendt's arresting Jim, of denim and mixed media:
And two pieces by yours truly:
