Fiber Art Exhibit at Lost River Market and Deli
Southern Indiana is full of creative people. Lost River Market and Deli will celebrate some of the fiber artists amongst us during the month of October with a fiber art exhibit. Anyone can enjoy fiber arts in its many forms so the exhibit will celebrate veteran, beginning and just plain exploring artists.
A show opening reception will take place on Sunday, September 28 at 6pm.
The exhibit will be available to visit throughout the month of October. Some pieces will be available for sale. A consignment area is available in the store for a larger selection of knitted fall products as well.
The exhibit will feature the following artists and their works:
Janabai Raymundo – knitter and quilter. Janabai will share some of her knitted one-of-a kind creations plus her new quilted pieces as wall hangings, pillow covers and market bags. A Salem resident, Janabai is a master at knitted lace shawls and is exuberant at exploring quilting techniques.
Sandy Clark Kolaks – quilter and crafter. Sandy has learned some creative quilting techniques this year and there is no looking back. She is working on her fourth quilt THIS YEAR and will be hanging several of her full size pieces in the exhibit. For one of her quilts Sandy used embroidery squares from her grandmother and added her own to make a multi-generational full size piece.
Debbie Turner – learning to weave. Debbie will show woven towels, table runners, a Smalandsvav wall hanging and cloths all inspired by her favorite place to weave, Vavstuga, a Swedish weaving school in Massachusetts. Weaving is to be used so most of the pieces shown have been used at dinners shared with friends.
Barbara Penn – embroiderer, cross stitcher and seamstress. Barbara wears many craft hats but the exhibit will include her embroidery art. Small, framed or used as part of larger pieces such as bags, Barbara’s embroidery is well crafted but whimsical. You may recognize Barbara’s work from the Orange County HomeGrown farmers market or holiday market where she has sold her Folk Art pieces and embroidered purses. She also helps design and implement the First Chance Center’s ENVISION line of purses and bags.
Judy Phillips – knitter. Judy will exhibit her knitted shawls and well crafted hooded scarves, hats and gloves. Judy’s knitting is noted for its exquisite structure. It is thick and holds its shape after years of wearing. When you choose to purchase and wear Judy’s knitted clothing you choose to wear art.
Besides her pieces in the exhibit, Judy’s knitted wear will be available throughout the fall in the commission area of the store.
LeeAnn Brumage – knitter. LeeAnn’s hats, scarves and gloves were all available at the store last winter. She will introduce this year’s selection with this exhibit, displaying her wearable art in her signature earth tones. Additional pieces will be available throughout the fall in the commission area of the store.
Alejandra Klawitter– beginning weaver, embroiderer, knitter, seamstress, musician and so much more. Ale will show her first weaving projects but will also share some of her creatively knitted sweaters and embroidery pieces that are impossible to describe. Be prepared to be dazzled.
Leah Klawitter – beginning weaver, knitter, embroiderer and artist. Leah is the 7 year old daughter of Alejandro and Sam Klawitter. She will show us her beginning weaving projects, but she also creates in any craft she puts her hand to. We can’t wait to see what she has to show us.
