We are so lucky to have this kind of talent in eastern Nebraska, and feel proud for the opportunity to showcase their work.

Omaha, NE (PRWEB) July 21, 2014

AccuQuilt is excited to unveil the newest exhibit in their gallery – “Color Flow” by Fiber Works. Fiber Works is a collaborative group of 12 fiber artists from 7 cities in eastern Nebraska. This group works together to expand their knowledge and push the boundaries of their creativity. Their mission is to learn, inspire, and support each other in their fiber art endeavors.

For their fascinating “Color Flow” exhibit, each of the 12 members was assigned a color from the color wheel. The challenge was to create a piece measuring 18-inches wide by 30-inches tall that “reads” the given color. A variety of techniques, fibers, fabrics, and embellishments was encouraged. The color used was to be mostly pure, saturated color with hints of tones, tints, and shades of the color. Artists and colors include:

Red-Karen Murphy
Red Orange-Pat Stava
Orange-Dorothy Heidemann-Nelson
Yellow Orange- Merrilee Hansen
Yellow- Cynthia Levis
Yellow Green- Cindi Pape
Green-Marilyn Rembolt
Blue Green-Roxann O'Hare
Blue-Jo Drueke
Blue Violet-Peg Pennell
Violet-Sheila Green
Red Violet-Lynn O'Rourke

The Fiber Works mavens also have a bonus surprise, in the form of a collaborative quilt inspired by the work of lauded quilt artist elinor peace bailey. Ms. bailey sent each quilter an original piece to start with, and the talented quilters used their imaginations and ever-present sense of inspiration to add to it, creating a mix of beautifully unique squares. The squares were pieced together to create a truly unique and beautiful finished quilt.

AccuQuilt’s Chief Energizing Officer Steve Nabity said, “We are so lucky to have this kind of talent in eastern Nebraska, and feel proud for the opportunity to showcase their work.”
