A New Challenge & Earth, Fire & Fiber at the Anchorage Museum

In my sidebar, you may notice a new icon. It's Fiberactions. I am very excited to be a part of this new challenge, & I hope you all will enjoy our journey as we travel through the next 2 years with our new challenges.
Yesterday my DH
 & I went to the Anchorage Museum to see the "Earth, Fire & Fiber" exhibit. I was able to take a few pictures to share with you. This doll above "Rah Syn God",  was made by Kenai artist  Karen A. Fogarty.
The beaded purse below is "Rooms" by Kate Boyan, from Homer.
This group of shield purses , were made by Monica  Jenicek Lyall of Anchorage.


Karin Franzen, from Fairbanks did these two spectacular quilts,
Pirouette 4 & 6.


Linda Beach, from Chugiak made this tree quilt, named "Tenacity".
Denise Gallup from Girdwood, did this mixed media piece,called "the History".These 2 Shibori scarves were made by Wendy Smith Woods, from Suton.Finally, I loved this small stressed felt piece by Ellen M. Anderson from Juneau. She called it "Minerality".
