TAA Member Show

Thursday night Textile Art Alliance, an affiliate group of the Cleveland Museum of Art held its 2011 Member Show opening at Lorain County Community College. The show will be open until March 17.
TAA supports the textile collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. We raise money from our annual Wearable Art Fashion Show and Boutique in October. We are the one affiliate group of the museum that includes artists. Our group has many talents, weavers, quilters, jewelers, felters, wearable art makers, surface designers, mixed media artists, textile experts, etc. It is a show of many different textile pieces and is a preview of Focus: Fiber that we will hold this December. That show is open to fiber artists in Ohio and its eight contiguous states. Entry forms can be downloaded from
I helped coordinate the member show and will work on Focus: Fiber coordinating entries.
The photo to the left shows my 2 pieces. The turquoise one in the very back is called Her Marriage to Walter Made Marian Feel She Had Become the Little Woman. The gray piece with the row of girls is called Maple Street Girls Club.
In the foreground is Katherine Dunlevey's small purse display. Katherine made a small purse a day for months, inspired by a calendar of purse photos. Her felted vests are on the mannekins in the back.
The three green panels in the background of the last photo was made by Marty Young who quilted tea bags into this these and another large piece.
