THREE TEXTILE SCULPTURE WORKS

This week has been spent putting the final touches on the sculptural pieces for the landscape exhibit. The exhibit will be at the TRAC Gallery in Spruce Pine, NC from July 16-August 13.  The three sculptures along with 14 framed wall works are now completed.  An inventory sheet is ready for the gallery and our group of four artists is ready for set-up on July 12.

The embellishments were added.  Threads were stitched randomly along with metal parts and beads.

 "Sanctuary" , Lori LaBerge  2016

Threads were added to "Sanctuary" and the piece was stitched in place.  The threads add a bit of mystery to the work.

Loose threads were also added to the bottom of this work.  The heavier use of metal along with bold colors show the strength of nature.

It is interesting to see what happens when you view art up close.  Where does the interest lie?  How is it different from viewing at a distance?
