On Exhibit - Elin Noble

Elin Noble's show "Layered Affinities: Quilts and Hand-dyed Cloth," is on exhibit at the Narrows Gallery in Fall River MA, through Saturday, May 2, 2009.

Elin is a master at dyeing fabric, whether it's a 3" piece with a beautiful ink-blot-like detail, or a very large piece of cotton that she's folded and dyed with many layers of color, or multiple yards of silk organza that are hung in layers that present different patterns floating in space.

Here are some installation shots of her show, which I saw yesterday. Pictures on the web are nice to see, but if you can see it in person, do. Fiber work is always better when you're looking at it a few inches to a many feet away.
