My Favorite Handwovens on Display

Five of my favorite handwoven works are on display in a local exhibit. The Southwest Gourd and Fiber Fine Art Show is the current exhibit (through July 1) at the Kerr Arts and Cultural Center in Kerrville, Texas. This is a competitive show featuring artists from across the US. Steve made beautiful wooden hanging and mounting devices for my pieces. Winter Window is a double-binding rag rug that is displayed as a wall hanging. I thoroughly enjoyed the design process for this rag rug, so I am happy that Winter Window received a Judge’s Special Award.

If you hang a rag rug on the wall it becomes fine art. And I’m ok with that.

May others enjoy seeing what you enjoy making.

Happy Weaving,

  1. This is so neat!! I’m happy with you that your Winter Window was given a special award and that your beautiful weaving is on display at this art show.

    1. Hi Elisabeth, Thank you for your very kind sentiments. It’s the first time I’ve done something like this, and it’s been an interesting experience. I may have the courage to do it again next year.

  2. Karen, This is wonderful! I’m glad your beautiful work was acknowledged with an award. The way you display the snowflakes is brilliant! Congratulations!

    1. Hi Beth, It took a bit of creative problem solving between Steve and me to figure out a simple way to display the three snowflake banners together. We wanted them to be viewed from front and back. I’m glad you noticed!

      Thank you so much for your kind compliments!
