INNOVATORS AND LEGENDS:
Through Sept. 7. This exhibition, organized by the Muskegon Museum of Art, features over 70 pieces by 50 artists from the U.S. and abroad who belong to the first, and subsequent, generations of artists who explore the myriad possibilities inherent in fabric, thread, fiber and yarn. Weaving, knitting, soft sculpture, embroidery, felting and other techniques are featured, used in ways that are by turns painterly, sculptural or fashionable and often surprising and amusing. Museum hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays-Saturdays, Thursday evenings until 9 p.m. and noon to 5 p.m. Sundays. Admission: $7 adults, $6 senior citizens, $4 children ages 3-12 years, free for museum members.
This exhibit is at the Figge Museum in Davenport, Iowa. If you want to read a very well written article about it -- here's the link to the David Burke story in the Quad City Times.

I went with my very special group of TBC friends....it was a spontaneous decision, with absolutely no advance planning...which is probably why we had a nearly perfect day!!

As soon as I get the real pictures off my real camera, I will write more about it.
