Yesterday I visited the Jewish Community Center here in Austin, to see an exhibit called “Inspirations in Fiber Art”.
The fiber art pieces on display were created by Kathy York and Barb Forrister. I’ve posted previous photos of some of Barb’s quilts (here) when I first saw her work at the Capital of Texas Quilt Show in 2012. According to the exhibit,
Following WWII, Fiber art was coined to describe artists’ more unconventional two and three-dimensional works with unique fibers and dyeing techniques. Now, the textured and structural qualities of fiber/quilted art reflect the aesthetic concerns of contemporary art.
I really enjoyed seeing this exhibit. There are SO many things you can do with fabric, it’s unbelievable. Here are some of my favorite pieces made by these talented ladies.
Aren’t they amazing? Which one is your favorite?
