There is an interesting exhibit currently at the Mulvane Museum, located on the Washburn University campus in Topeka, Kansas.
From 1089 works submitted from across the US & Canada, only 100 pieces were selected. A full variety of media are present but I was especially excited to see the fiber works. Here are just a few:
|Nowhere To Hide, Pieced vintage clothing embellished with metallic thread. 33″ x 52″ x 1.5″, Libby & Jim Mijanovich, Marshall, NC|
|Passage IV, Handmade felt, 15″ x 15″ x 3″, Sharron Parker, Raleigh, NC|
|Andrea’s Tree, Sewn & cut felt, pins, 48″ x 36″ x 2″, Timea Tihanyi, Seattle, WA|
|Ties That Bind-scarfs, Digitally printed cotton voile and silk, 54″ x 18″, Marianne van Ooij, Brooklyn, NY|
And, couldn’t leave this one out (on the far wall).
|Can’t See The Forest For The Trees, Cotton & Polyester Thread, 36″ x 108″, Rachelle Gardner, Mission, KS|
A detail of Forest. Can you find the frog?
If you are in the area before this free exhibit ends, or are close enough for a Day Trip, consider going. It is worth it.
