Tapestry


Today we feature one of our fellow fiber artists, who has found her calling. She loves to design and weave tapestries. These are not the large over sized pieces of art but small intricate, delicate works that measure 4"x4" or 5"x5". She works her wonders on her regular loom instead of typically using a vertical loom. Last night we attended a reception for local gallery and several of Gerry's pieces were on display. She has found some humor in one of her pieces, a pizza with a slice missing!. Her other pieces are woven homage to historical sites: Goliad, TX
There was also the earth on display in miniature. Yes, Gerry has truly created some wonderful weavings.
