Textile Art Show This Friday

Barbara Abbott wrote with information on The Old Art Building in Leland, northern lower Michigan. They will be having a “Fiber Festival” textile art exhibit and the opening is this coming Friday, October 6, from 5-8pm. Details are on the website (click photo bottom right on main page).

Here’s an excerpt of what they say:

Artists with original fiber art will exhibit and sell their work in mediums of paper, wearable art (clothing), tapestry & woven handbags, weaving, quilts, knits, fiber sculpture, painted silk, and fiber critters. Admission is free and open to the public.

This year’s featured artist is Lynn Spitz-Nagle of Omena, with “Animals Unlimited”. For more than 33 years she has been working magic creating animals and folk art people in fibers. Lynn hand weaves the fabrics used in her original-designed patterns. She often uses fibers she has handspun of wool and dog hair. At our festival, Lynn will demonstrate all stages of creating people’s faces; showing how these delightful creatures come to life and take on a personality of their own. She will also give weaving lessons on a floor loom.
