"Call to the Heart"

"Call to the Heart" by Linda Friedman
Linda Friedman created this fiber art piece for the "Put A Bird On It!" exhibit.






















This is Linda's artist statement:

"'I love you and I'll see you tomorrow", my father said as he kissed me goodbye. As we hugged, a crow called out from its perch atop a telephone wire. There was no tomorrow. An accident took my father's life. From that fateful day forward, when I see and hear a crow utter its call, I hear, "I love you and I'll see you tomorrow." Yes, Daddy. I'll see you tomorrow."

"Magdelena"

"Magdelena" by Teresa Shippy

Art piece created by Teresa Shippy for Beyond the Edge Fiber Artists' "Put A Bird On It!" exhibit.

Artist Statement:

"Striking a pose with her beloved parrot. Magdalena aka Frida Kahlo. Her fondness for the exotic and in so many ways the unusual. Magdelena's tireless quest for glimmers of joy included a menagerie of exotic pets, she loved dearly, perhaps because they spoke to her own sense of creaturely strangeness. Memories of seeing her fantastic dynamic body of work many years ago while in Washington, DC. I have always been in awe of her incredible diverse life, full of color and complexities. This piece is included in my homage to Frida portrait collection which was started in 2007 and continues to grow."

"Tough Old Bird"

Eileen Wintemute's piece entitled "Tough Old Bird" is shown here.




This piece was created for Beyond the Edge's "Put A Bird On It!" exhibit. This is what Eileen has to say about this piece:

"This is Roy, and you will probably appreciate this if you have a "Roy" in your life. You know the sort: salt of the earth,  worked hard to make his way through life,  sticks to old school principles.  Roy is the kind of person that I have found worth knowing. All in all, he's one tough old bird."
