Last week I wrote about subscribing to the new Fiber Art Now magazine. Well, it arrived today. How great is that! I can’t believe how fast that was. There are many articles about fiber in different uses, with a special emphasis on rug hooking (and believe me, it’s not your grandmother’s rug hooking). But one of my favorite is the Artist Profile of Joetta Maue. Both of the images below accompany the article.
I am continually impressed with the creativity of human beings. When I first saw the mother and baby, I immediately felt emotion and connection that one might feel when standing before a painting. Both pieces are embroidered, appliqued, and painted.
In the On View section, thee is a “gallery” of Korean Textiles, which were on view at the Museum of Craft and Folk Art in San Francisco. Darn! Missed that one too!
All in all, I enjoyed looking and reading this issue of the new fiber art magazine and look forward to the next issue. And, I am very impressed with the quick service!
