After the errands we happened upon an art exhibit in the local gallery and I was delighted to see that there was quite a bit of textile art included.
This was a costume or skirt of some kind that had been altered interestingly. (the radiator behind the piece was not part of the exhibit)
Thread on paper. On this next one, I couldn't get a picture without the reflection but it is a fabric and paper collage, stitched. Honestly, I have seen much more interesting stuff right here amongst us.
The label on the next piece said "batik and machine." I thought that was a rather odd description but when I looked closely, I saw that it was a collage of batik on a paper ground, then stitched with decorative (and automatically set) stitches. Hmmm.
Plastic wire wrapped with thread.
