On my way to teach at Gulf States Quilting Seminar in Baton rouge, I traveled thru Atlanta's airport on Wednesday. My layover was over 3 hours so I decided to explore the massive terminals. I was rewarded when I spied this fascinating display of 'found objects" in terminal T.
Several vessels were created by Karyl Sisson, amazingly they were made entirely of cloth measuring tapes.
Fiber art was represented by Susan Shie's work. It was a pleasure to view her piece, (even looking through glass display cases!)
Tina Fung Holder comes from Wisconsin. Her work features beaded safety pins. I found it to be far more sophisticated than the materials imply.
The Gulf States Organization certainly is one of the best organized groups I've worked with in some time. Southern hospitality at its finest. With one lecture, 1 full day workshop already completed, I have 3 more full-day classes ahead and am looking forward to working with the eager, friendly students. This show celebrates it's 25th anniversary.....tonight we will be treated to birthday cake......yummm.
I'm teaching my new wool collage workshop today and already have my camera in my travel case to snaps photos of students work to share with you dear readers.......stay tuned.....
