Images from the Fiber Artists of San Antonio juried exhibition opening

I was thrilled to have two mixed-media pieces juried into the annual exhibition by juror Maggie Weiss, from Chicago.  A special thrill for me was that one of the pieces is a length of art cloth using laminated shredded paper.  The best thing of all was that I had my husband Tim, my oldest daughter and one of my dearest friends from Kansas, Billie, attend the opening!  This was a rare moment, indeed.
The exhibition is hanging until the first week of November at Gallery Nord in San Antonio.  If you are in the vicinity of San Antonio I encourage you to check out this wonderful exhibition.  I'm honored to be a part of it!

I was thrilled that the piece, which is two-sided, was hanging freely in the center of the gallery.
Dimensions of the piece are 24 inches by 80 inches.
The piece is hung from a hollow-core acrylic rod, which allowed monofilament to be fed through it.

Gallery Nord is one of the most beautiful galleries in the city of San Antonio, and a PERFECT venue for fiber art.  The vaulted ceiling adds the perfect note of drama to undulating cloth, garments, and the lush colors and textures of all that is fiber art.


  1. this is such a beautiful setting for a fiber art show. I love your shredded paper landscape that looks like it is hanging from the ceiling - very cool. How wonderful to have both Tim and Luren attend the opening with you! Congratulations on the show.

  2. Thanks! It was really fun to have loved ones present.
