Aberration Exhibition

I have been travelling for the last week, enjoying inspirational days filled with creating art, exploring galleries, and visiting with other artists. It has been a great week, and I hope to share some of it with you in the next few days.

My first stop was Columbia, Missouri. While I was there, I checked out some of the fiber art exhibitions and jotted down the names of several new-to-me regional fiber artists. Some of the work was amazing! One of my stops was the Aberration exhibit at Montminy Gallery, which featured fiber art from the Missouri Fiber Artists. I had two pieces in this exhibition, and I was thrilled to be included with such fabulous work. It is the first time that I have truly seen a "fiber" exhibit that included the full breadth of what fiber art can encompass. There were sculptural pieces and an installation made from handmade paper, weavings, wearable art, textile wall pieces, baskets, and on and on. It was inspiring and challenging to see this exhibition!
