Photo documentation, textile and fiber information, biographical info and web links to Alma Lesch, Shepherdsville, Kentucky's textile artist, author and teacher w/common threads to regional LAFTA members and the national "art cloth" movement.
With Jane Dunnewold's current Louisville KY visit LAFTA members and fiber artists see her impact on art cloth links to the current LAFTA exhibit at JCC's Patio Gallery on Dutchmans Lane through Feb 22, 2011. Alma Lesch called that gift in fiber vision as having an "eye". Search YOUTUBE for video clips of Dunnewold's workshop events and critiques.
Invitated by KMAC to speak on that closing date in reference to their current exhibition which includes the work of Alma Lesch, I am pleased to see this link in Jane Dunnewold's work using actual clothing confirming my link to my Swedish grandmother who saw my love of textiles, early in my life, and entrusting me with several quilts made by her mother, my great-grandmother Hilda Victoria Madelyn Magnuson from Clearfield, PA. There are indeed common threads that unite us all.
