October brings the Annual General Meeting of the FIBRESPACE textile artist's group. This is the meeting when we plan the topic for next year's travelling exhibition. A FUN and creative experience with lots of laughter and often unpredictable results. Members travel from all over the state and this meeting will be held at Edillilie in the middle of Eyre Peninsula.
People will be bringing along their pieces for the collaboration with The Rocky River Riters, a small additional exhibition to our annual exhibition. Members have chosen one or more written works to be depicted through Textile Art. I have chosen some of my marbled fabric to create the "Sea Dragon" and added a sheer gause to give the effect of being under the sea. The "Survivor" is an image of a tenatious tree that grows in the Port Germein gauge , printed on to silk and quilted and beaded. You can click on the images to see them large.
The pieces from "Fibre Frolics" (this years exhibition) will continue to be toured and exhibited in country venues across the state.
