The Friends of the Redmond Library Art Committee is pleased to announce a collection of Fiber Art created by local artists. The show will be up until the end of September and features the work of Mary Stiewig, Charlene Kenny and Jan Erickson.
Charlene Kenny has been quilting for 7 years and was awarded the Best Use of Recycled Materials for her entry in the 2011 Sisters Quilt Show. Mary Stiewig has a background in traditional quilting but now goes beyond the traditional by altering and embellishing fabric. Kenny and Steiwig both belong to the Journeys Art quilt group in Sisters.
Jan Erickson has shown her fiber art throughout the Northwest. Oregon State University awarded her 1st
place in their annual Art About Agriculture show and purchased the piece for their collection.
In the Silent Reading Room, artist Heidi Searle is showing her engaging and colorful watercolors of local landscapes and garden scenes. Heidi is new to watercolor and is inspired by Central Oregon’s beauty. An artist reception will be held on September 3rd from 1:00 until 3:00 in the afternoon.
The Redmond Library Art Committee regularly features local artists. For more information please call Linda Barker at 541-312-1064.
