Fibre Art Show at the Stittsville Library
The following is a press release from Out of the Box. Yesterday we set up our "From a Book" fibre art show at the Stittsville Public Library and it looks great! Please check out my Exhibitions page for a flyer with more photos of the work displayed.
"From a Book" Art Show
The Out-of the-Box fibre artists invite you to visit the Stittsville Branch of the Ottawa Public Library (OPL) in the month of November to view their "From a Book" show. Inspired by stories, characters, titles, words, places and shapes found in books, the fibre artists have used a variety of techniques and materials to produce a delightful and diverse art show. Books that inspired this show include classic literature, mysteries, science fiction, natural science, children's books, and even Roget's Thesaurus. Quilting, beading, felting, embroidery, mixed media, sculpture, and surface design are among the techniques showcased.
Out-of-the-Box is a group of fibre artists who are passionate about creating innovative, thought-provoking fibre art, and promoting that art in the community. This is their second show at the Stittsville Branch. For more information, visit their website (www.out-of-the-box.org) or that of the Ottawa Public Library (www.biblioottawalibrary.ca). The Stittsville Branch is located at 1637 Stittsville Main Street.
