“One of a Kind” Fiber Exhibit

Blackbird on November Winds

By Kathie Briggs

The “One of a Kind” Fiber Exhibit curated by featured artist Kathie Briggs will be at the Charlevoix Circle of Arts on July 16th. Artists include Pamela Allen, Mary Andrews, Jill Ault, Kerry Bowes, Barbara Bushey Kathy Campau, Laura Cater-Woods, Rosemary Claus-Gray, Sheri Cooper, Lenore Crawford, Carolyn King, Virginia Spiegel, Patricia Turner, Desiree Vaughn and Gera Witte.
The Fiber Artist Coalition (FAC) traveling quilt exhibit, which was inspired by the Wallace Stevens poem "Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird", will also be on display at the gallery. The FAC is a group of SAQA PAM artists in the Great Lakes area. Members of FAC are: Frieda Anderson, Astrid Bennett, Kathie Briggs, Shelley Brucar, Cheryl Dineen Ferrin, Clairan Ferrono, Peg Keeney, Pat Kroth, Casey Puetz, Joan Potter Thomas, Laura Wasilowski, and Trish Williams.
As an added bonus, you'll also be able to see the SAQA 20th Anniversary Trunk show on exhibit. As part of the celebration of SAQA's 20th anniversary year, SAQA created and organized the SAQA Trunk Show. SAQA members responded to a call for small works which would represent their artistic voices. Each 8"-square art quilt was matted with archival mat board. This is a great opportunity to view these pieces of art up close!

Opening Reception for the 'One of a Kind' Fiber exhibit is Friday July 16th from 5 – 7 p.m. The exhibit will run July 16, 2010 through September 18, 2010
