Work in Weiser

This past weekend, I went to an event in Weiser featuring artwork by my friend, Linda McLaughlin. Her artwork was displayed at the little theater in town and lots of people showed up to listen to her talk about her art.

Even though I had seen her working on parts of the pieces and even saw some of them finished, it was nice to be able to see them up on the walls with some space to step back and look at them.  As well as to take more time to step close and look at all of Linda's wonderful hand stitching.

Linda has daily, weekly and monthly projects going all the time.  If you go to her blog, you can follow along with what she is doing and see all the hand stitches.

Here is a picture of the space with Linda's work up on the walls.

A photo of The Daily Paper, a weekly project where Linda had fused pieces of paper towel, that had been used to wipe up dye, onto fabric and then added hand stitching.

Another daily project where she had cut up some monoprinted fabrics and added hand stitching.

Here's a piece with monoprinted circles that were cut up and put back together.  I couldn't stand back far enough to get the whole artwork in the picture.  This is one of my many favorites.

Linda will be having a exhibition of some of her artwork at The Arts Center in Corvalis, Oregon this autumn.
