Fiber Art Master Pieces at the Ojai Valley Museum

Museum

Our beautiful Museum in Ojai opened up their very first Fiber Arts Show, celebrating the vast variety of Fiber Artists in the county of Ventura.  It has been a huge success, and I am so grateful and proud to be a part of it.  The public has responded  ecstatically to the “Modern Folk Art” feel the fiber arts have.

Installing

Here are my gowns in the process of being installed by the museums curator Michelle Ellis Pracy.  She has done an absolutely amazing job of creating this wonderful flow between all the different items, textures and colors.
