I am back from an exciting, visually stimulating weekend in Philadelphia. I had the pleasure of attending several interesting and inspiring lectures at the SDA/SAQA conference, a day of gallery hopping through the galleries of Fiber Philadelphia and meeting and reconnecting with fiber artist friends. There was so much to see and do, that I am still trying to wrap my head around everything that I saw and did.... Just uploading and looking through my photos has renewed my excitement again!
One of the first things that caught my attention while viewing the varied fiber works though out the city, was the shadows that were created by many of them. So for the first installment of my reflections of Fiber Philly, please enjoy some shadow play....
