Fiber Artists Exhibit at Betz Gallery

HAFA group (Houston Association of Fiber Artists) Gallery Exhibit is being hosted by Betz Gallery through October 26th.  If you have a chance, drop into this gallery and give these pieces a look.  Here is just a few photos of what you can enjoy there.
This lovely garment greets you as you enter the front door.  Entitled "Into-Me-See-The Language of Love" by Carol Watson. 

Here is the back view of the garment.
Here is an interesting crochet hanging by Fermin Coronado who used various techniques to create "Sea Scape".
This piece is not on display but Fermin showed it off at the regular meeting.  This scarf  will be sent to be exhibited in New York as a tuxedo accessory.
"Empty Nest" by Hope Wilmarth uses various quilting and surface design tecniques  for this small wall hanging.
Susan Abouhalkah wove "Yesterday's Towel-Today".  It is displayed on a modern towel stand.
Ginny Eckley has a way with color and needles.  This hanging is entitled "Koi Pond Under the Willow II".  Her larger piece that was entered in the exhibit received Best of Show.  You'll need to stop in the gallery to see that piece.
Aileen Gugenheim is exhibiting "Matrix Field", a work of layered silk, pieced collage with speciality threads and bead embellishments.
In an earlier blog, there was a photo of threads that were used to create this lovely drapey scarf.  Knitted by Scharine Kirchoff and entitled "Peace Be With You", this shawl is linen paper with silk stainless steel thread.
Brenda Bunten-Schloesser has given us this creative mosaic of painted cotton, dyed and woven yarn threads and she has titled it "Light of Morning at Sunrise"
Mari Omori with "Incubator, 2011"  Can you guess the what the incubator holds?  This interesting display in a hundred year old wooden box or incubator holds babies of .................teabags!  Yes, teabags, cotton, cotton seeds.  Stop in Betz Gallery before the closing date to see other creative pieces on display.
