The MoFA Show

I’m excited to be a part of “The Smalter Gallery presents: The MoFA show, an exhibition of work by local fiber artists” at the Smalter Gallery in Kansas City, MO. My Earth Series is included in the show.

The Smalter Gallery is currently open by appointment only due to COVID-19. Please contact the gallery to schedule an appointment to see our work.

Because in-person viewing is a little more difficult at this time, we will have an online opening Friday, July 24, 2020 at 6PM. Information on that event is available on Facebook.

Reflections on Nature Exhibit

Hi folks,

If you follow any of my social media accounts,* you’ve seen my work on this piece over the last couple of months. Now it is finished and it is hanging in an exhibit with work from some of my fellow Kansas City Fiber Artists. Yay!

Harvest Meditation | Annie Webster | Webster Fiber Arts

This piece is called “Harvest Meditation” and it is one hard piece to photograph. I’ve been trying to color correct the photos I took of it yesterday for a while now and I have given up and am showing you that “good enough” one above. Reds and oranges are always hard for me to capture. I wish I didn’t like using those colors so much.

Anyway…I dyed the yarns for this piece with natural extracts and food scraps that I had been storing in the freezer for a few months. I used spent tea bags, assorted herb scraps, red and yellow onion skins, avocado, turmeric, madder, logwood, and iron. I think my favorite yarn is the green, which comes from the red onion skin (weird, I know). I love pulling green yarn out of a pot of reddish-purple water. It is just so cool.

“Harvest Mediation” is on display at the Anita B. Gorman Conservation Discovery Center in Kansas City, along with beautiful pieces from other artists in the Kansas City Fiber Artists group. There is some really cool stuff in our exhibit. Please go check it out!

*And you totally should, because I am much better about posting things to them to than I am to this blog because I don’t have to write as much/give it as much thought. Instagram is my favorite, because it is pictures, but I’m on Facebook and Twitter, too.
