Join us for the textile exhibit opening of artist Robin Montero. Montero is a Seaside resident and former costume designer and textile artist. Montero has spent the last few years experimenting with felting techniques. Using both wet felting and needle felting to create sculptures, wall hangings, and even lamps out of fabrics. Montero has been inspired to push the limits of what fabrics can do.
“I discovered felting arts quite by accident while wandering through a fabric store looking for “inspiration” when I met a woman selecting wool roving for a felting class she was attending. Felting from wool is known to be the oldest textile and is produced by matting, condensing and pressing fibers together.” ~ Montero
Montero has shown in galleries all over the Oregon coast, but most recently at Sun Rose Gallery in Seaside, Oregon. Her exhibit will be on display through November of 2018.
This exhibit is being sponsored by our neighbors, Center Diamond. Center Diamond has been selling fabric for over twenty years in Cannon Beach with a focus on contemporary batiks, brights, Asian, landscape/beach and modern fabrics. A favorite for many local quilters and textile artists!
