I had the opportunity to be at the La Conner Museum the day before the closing of Best of the Festival, the exhibit which featured my art quilt Nature’s Fractal. The museum occupies the historic Gaches Mansion which has been lovingly restored and maintained and is quite a treat to walk through. Sybil, the well-informed volunteer staff member on duty, contributed significantly to an enjoyable experience of the museum. Unfortunately, no photography was allowed of this exhibit with the one exception, my work, seen here:
In addition to the Best exhibit, the Abstracted exhibition featured work by Fibre Art Network of Western Canada which intrigued me. Pairs of fiber artists interpreted their subject – one in a representational fiber art piece and one in an abstract/non-representational fiber art piece. Photographs without flash were allowed for this exhibit. Here are a few of the works that grabbed my attention, starting with Barcelona Fruit Stand. The representational piece is by Judy Leslie, the abstract is by Robin Fischer.
