My Inner Self-Portrait
A fine arts fiber exhibit exploring aspects of self-portraiture. In this exhibit the artist was asked to look beyond the mere physical and instead present an inner view. The art work may reflect how the artist sees themselves at this time, or at a formative moment in their life. Each piece reveals something unique to the individual and at the same time, that which is universal to all.

Shaped by Fiber III
Shaped by Fiber III is an exhibit featuring fiber art that goes beyond two dimensional wall hangings. The works shown in this exhibit include three dimensional forms, vessels, mounted fiber art, and hanging pieces. This stunning exhibit shows numerous ways that fibers can be sculpted to create spectacular artworks.

Linda Friedman's "Speaking Out" in "Pulse" exhibit

Congratulations, Linda Friedman! Her artwork, "Speaking Out" has been juried into the Pulse exhibit at the Fuller Lodge Art Center in Los Alamos, New Mexico. The show will run from June 17 through July 30.

Her submission is in response to their call for entry which read, as follows:
“Examine the concept of rhythm and take time to tune into the cadence of the world around you.  Adjust the tempo as you see fit and sculpt, sketch, stipple or paint along to your own beat.  Pick a song that inspires you and we’ll share it with the world through a phone app.”
Her work was inspired by Pharrell Williams’ song, “Freedom” that was first released in 2015.
