I took several pictures of the pieces in this show. I was not surprised by the unusual pieces chosen by this juror. Aurturo Sandaval was the juror, and he uses very interesting materials for many of his own pieces. You can check him out here.
This is my favorite piece from the show. There was A LOT of threadwork, and it was somewhat three dimensional as the face was actually “shaped.” The visible eye was actually set into the piece and the cheek jutted out from the piece—almost like it was stuffed. I just loved it. You can see some of the maker’s other work here.
There were quilts and quilt-like pieces.

There were other embroidered pieces (besides mine).
There were sculptural pieces, too.
I’ve shown you a REALLY small part of this exhibit. There are garments, more sculptural pieces, tapestries, and a couple of very contemporary and unusual pieces. (The “Best of Show” piece isn’t shown in this blog post.) If you have a chance to go see this exhibit in person, please do.
