‘Inspired Threads” celebrates Fiber Art and its unique ability, using various textures and quilting, to create the illusion of a 3rd dimension. This collection of over 90 works of fiber art is presented by the Art Quilters of the Lowcountry. The show includes artwork that ranges from large to small pieces and from abstract to realistic. Every Friday, from October 4th to October 25th, the Quilters will be at the museum from 12 noon to 2 p.m. and provide demonstrations and gallery walks.
About the Artists: The Art Quilters of the Low Country are five award-winning fiber artists who share a passion for creating art using fabric and thread. The Quilters are 4 gals and a guy, Ron Hodge, Jody Wigton, Peg Weschke, Donna Stankiewicz and Shaaron Thomas.
Ron creates his art using various fabrics but there is always one constant – his precision piecing and bead work. Donna paints her fabric with various dyes and then embellishes with applique and thread painting. Shaaron is an incredible artist who paints on silk and then thread paints and quilts her work. Peg creates fiber collages to realistically portray lowcountry scenes and Jody uses color and improvisational piecing to create beautiful abstract art. There are five unique styles that together create an interesting and amazing fiber art show. They hope that their joy of creation and passion for fiber art brings smiles and enjoyment to those that view it!
