Art in Fiber 2011 Show Interpretation Piece

I was thrilled to be one of 24 fiber artist to be juried into the Art in Fiber 2011 show at The Copper Shade Tree Gallery in Round Top, Texas. Ginny Eckley was the juror. For the interpretation pieces the 24 artists were divided into 3 groups. One group was given a music CD, another group a poem and my group was given a 3D piece of artwork to interpret in fiber art. The piece below is my interpretation of Gerald Tobola's metal artwork, "Forest Floor". You can click on the photo to get a close view of the details. Can you find the tiny little forest gnomes hiding under the leaves? Because I love all things whimsical and magic I tried to add those elements in this piece. You have to look closely. Sorry if there is glare from my camera (operator error?). Santa has promised me a new camera for Christmas. Each fiber artists will have other pieces in the show made specifically for Art in Fiber 2011.

If you have never been to a fiber show at the Copper Shade Tree Gallery you are missing a opportunity to see fiber art created specifically for this show by fiber artists from across the state of Texas. The show runs Feb. 4--March 12. The opening reception is always a lively gathering where you can meet the artists. Gerald and Debbie Tobola, owners and artists, fill their gallery with art that is all handmade by Texas artisans. Even if you have never been there Gerald and Debbie will greet you like a welcome friend. That was my experience. Check out their website on the link above. Hope we will see you at the show.
