“I was impressed by the imagination and variety of artwork submitted for Out of the Loop.  Some of the pieces really surprised me with their approach to materials and broadened my own view of fiber art.  It has been inspiring for me, as an artist.  I hope visitors enjoy the show.” – Kate Themel, juror

Down the hill at the Saltbox Gallery:

Juror Kate Themel will exhibit 18 pieces of her own fiber art, created from 2008 to 2013, including a few on display for the first time.
