Laura's Art Cloth

Laura Beehler delivered a piece of  beautiful art cloth, titled "Lambent Thoughts," to me this afternoon, work that I purchased last spring, but waited to receive until it came down from "Never Static," a juried exhibit  of art cloth at The Textile Center in Minneapolis.

Layered organza gives this monumental and meditative piece  its  luminosity -- there's a kind of delicacy along with its power.

Tomorrow, I've a plan to interview Laura and then edit this post with a few more details about her process and the ideas behind this piece, but with rain and FASA (local guild meeting) today, I didn't quite get around to everything I planned -- so check back in in 24 hours if you have time. Laura is part of Art Cloth Studios in San Antonio, Jane Dunnewold's teaching studio.
