Fiber Art in the Renwick

During the last few months I was so much on the road that there is a backlog of blog posts about fiber art and its inspiration.

Here is the first: On August 26, 2019 I had the great pleasure to discover the Renwick Gallery in Washington DC.


It’s not too far from the White House and was saved from being torn down by First Lady Jackie Kennedy.


Many of the interesting displays, I would have loved to study in more details. But for this blog post, I keep aim and stay fiber art - sharing a few highlights that speak for themselves.
