Fiber Perceptons at Cerritos Library

Fiber Perceptions
at Cerritos Library
Cerritos, California
through September 15, 2014

Mia Bloom - "Rusted to the Bone"
The artist's eye perceives something worth capturing in everyday scenes or objects; a shape or color that catches the eye, a memory, or the contrast in one's surroundings. Things that others may see as plain and ordinary, an artist may perceive as special and extraordinary--something worthy of artistic interpretation. This exhibition represents individual artistic perceptions, seen with clear vision, and interpreted in a fiber medium.

We are so proud of our SoCA/SoNV members who took the time to make mini fiber arts pieces for the SAQA auction. We have 20 out of 182 members, but that is a good turnout. We'll see if we can better this by next year. Perhaps we can do one of our upcoming challenges in that size to get us ready to submit our pieces.  Thank you all who submitted a piece, and if I missed any of you, do let me know and I will make sure I get your name and entry in. Good job, everyone!!!
