Threads: A Sampling of Fiber Art from March 18-July 24, 2016

AnnMarie Sculpture Garden and Arts Center,

13480 Dowell Road, Dowell( Solomons) MD

It was so exciting to visit and be part of this show, beautifully displayed in the art center, surrounded by gardens and a 1/2 mile walk with sculptures many on loan from the Smithsonian’s Hirschhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden and the National Gallery of Art.

Again, there were so many exhibits, I could not show them all- just trying to show the range of techniques and personal expression that was on display. For me, it is very encouraging to see the huge diversity of ideas, techniques and philosophical expression, with both traditional and contemporary approaches equally represented. I love it!
