Designing Weavers - Expressions

Another wonderful Designing Weavers exhibit is up at the Escondido Municipal Gallery.  This Designing Weavers exihibit, the third this summer, is an intimate one where you can get up close and really see and appreciate the diversity of the fiber works exhibited.   Each time you walk around the room, you notice something new and special about the pieces. The exhibit is up until September 29th.  

Double your fiber in one visit.  When you go also check out the West Coast Fiber and Book Art Exhibition that is in the main gallery.  There are some really wild pieces there - don't miss the embroidered vaginas or the knitted canoes! 

Here are some photos I took right before the reception started of the Designing Weavers Expressions exhibit.  Enjoy!
