Yesterday we drove to Lincoln, Nebraska to see this exhibition, and it was fantastic! The variety and high caliber of fiber work in this exhibition is amazing, and I would recommend taking the time to go see it if you are near or traveling through this area of the country. The pieces above are only a teaser of what you will see. There are handmade paper vessels, felted wall pieces, woven tapestries, baskets and many more. It is one of the best fiber exhibitions that I have seen in the Midwest!

Hi Karen, I agree these are fantastic works of fiber art. There are so many things one can do with fiber as an art form. This exhibit looks stunning! I am familiar with the work of a number of these artists. I've seen their work in the Fiber Focus weekend in St. Louis. It returns in Sept., and I hope to attend and see the work of these artists, and more, in Sept.
