Here are a few pics from the Vino Room. There were so many scarves I had to spread some out on a table while the rest hung on two racks. The top photo shows a selection on the center rack with the orange velvet one a real standout. The brilliant color was a surprise to me--so different from the silk satin rust marks. To the right of the scarves in the background are two of my smaller wall hangings.
I had to get creative with my big silks as I could not use the walls. My friend Bob (who builds my wall brackets and lends me rusty things) and I collaborated on a design for gigantic banner hangers. They are 8 feet tall and can be taken apart for transport. Each can hold works back to back if needed. My friends from St. Louis give you a sense of the scale. The piece they are looking at is Chicken Scratch which won BEST OF SHOW at Fiber Nine last fall at Prairie State College in Chicago Heights, Illinois. It is rust dyed silk organza layered over black raw silk, 55 inches wide.
Last is a view from the other direction. Alison Reeves makes jewelry. That's her table on the right. In the distance is the watercolor display booth belonging to Jerie Artz and Arvilla Friar. The whole space was really quite beautiful and I thank Judy Wiemann and the staff of Villa Marie Winery for providing us with the venue.
