Avant-Garde Felt Exhibit at FAC During August

Avant-Garde ArtistsFrench Art Colony (4)August 2 marked the premier of the Avant-Garde Felt Exhibit at the French Art Gallery in Gallipolis, OH, featuring the work of Barbara Morejon and our own Marlene Gruetter.

P1010344 (Medium)Marlene’s contribution to this show was her most recent Shambolic garments, hats and scarves. These are marked by easy fluidity and irregular hemlines in three colorways: “All That Jazz” (black/white);”Peachy Keen I and II” (peach); and “Wilds” (earth tones).

Barbara gave permission to use pictures of two of her creations that have been previously published in international felting magazines.French Art Colony (1)

The photos don’t do the originals justice, of course. So visit the French Art Colony to see these beautiful, whimsical felt creations!
