Check Out This Show Featuring The Fiber Work Of Artis Rebecca Ringquist

If you are in the Chicago area there is a fantastic show featuring artist Rebecca Ringquist's works in Fiber/Embroidery. I highly recommend the show. Rebecca's work features old vintage embroidered items that have been reworked with heavy machine embroidery and hand embroidery. Her work has incredible depth with lots of texture and color. The show is at the Packer Schopf Gallery at 942 W. Lake St. in Chicago. Their website is . The show runs till June 18th, 2011. Above and below are some pictures (taken with the artist's permission) I took at the reception. Her work is amazing (and I have been lucky enough to have her as a teacher too). :)
