Our members are accomplishing great things. We'd like to brag a bit about their achievements!
Feast your eyes on all that fibery wall candy!! The Emerald Art Center was packed with textile art in December 2018.
Deborah Hebert's The Oregon Landscape: Paintings in Wool — 24 needle felted pieces and woven works celebrating Oregon's colorful, scenic vistas — filled a wall. On another, Ginny McVickar's exploration of patterns in nature — Form, Function, and Design: Where Math Meets Art.
Plus throughout the gallery, the World Fairy Tale Quilts — 90 art quilts created by 90 artists from Japan, France and the US who all used needle and cloth to illustrate stories from around the globe.
At the Oakshire Public House, Katy Gollahan found the perfect space to display her “Red Poppies” — high above the Oregon Fiber Artists poster. “Red Poppies” now has a new home with an art appreciator. Sale on the first day of the show.
Come on in! At the fantastic Eugene Textile Center, member artists filled the gallery space for OFA @ ETC 2018. Seen through the doorway is Omni Mountainskyrainbow's “Color Collections on Blue” — a blanket woven with hand spun yarn from a llama named "Blue" with various other fibers added in.
Journalist Ester Barkai described her visit to our show for readers of the Eugene Weekly.
Visitors began to gather as we installed our show, silk, cotton, wool -> art, in the Springfield City Hall Gallery. Perhaps on her way to care for other blooms, one viewer pauses by the garden portrayed Katy Gollahon in "Crow on a Fence." Anne Daughtry's "Ghost Riders in the Sky" found a buyer before the last artwork was hung! First red dot of several for the show.
Mary Jane Moffat's "Sunset on Beaver Creek" was juried into the The Wetlands Conservancy's Beaver Tales Art Exhibit, which traveled throughout the state from Oregon State University’s Giustina Gallery to the Oregon Zoo, Portland.
Is it straight? Mary Jane Moffat guides Shawn C., librarian at the Eugene Public Library, in search of the perfect placement for "All Together Now," a display of recent works by Oregon Fiber Artists. OFA members Karla Nelson, Barbara Bochnovic, Mary Jane Moffat, Deborah Hebert, Anne Daughtry, and Kathleen Sweet gather beneath the finished effort.
