>FiberPhiladelphia 2012 is an international biennial and regional festival that celebrates textile and fiber arts. The opening was on Saturday and I was kicking myself that I didn’t bring my camera. The show is outstanding. I was unsuccessful in grabbing photos from the website so you’ll have to follow the link and see for yourself Outside/Inside the Box
My husband snapped this picture of my daughter and her friend standing next to my piece.

If you’re local it’s worth seeing in person. Pictures can be deceiving some things I thought were large are actually small and others are surprisingly large and commanding. I think there’s something for everyone to love in this show. Fiber art is alive and kicking and it’s not your Grandma’s knitting.
If you go don’t miss stopping in on Warren and R.J. at bahdeebahdu a working studio for design and the development of art, sculpture and furnishings at 1522 N. American St. I featured on my blog here. You will find beautiful art, beautiful furnishings, and amazing trash to treasure light fixtures and sculptures. It’s only a block away from the Crane Arts Building.
