Art In LaConner

Just a quick post with photos from the show we saw last weekend at the Museum of Northwest Art. It was called "Raiment" and contained some pieces that I really enjoyed for their evocative nature and the craft that went into making them. I'm not one of those people who would ever argue that craft is not art, I think that's a fine line, but by using the word craft here, I am just trying to say that the part of me that loves knitting socks loved seeing the really detailed handiwork that went into some of these pieces. I love art that shows that artist's touch, that makes you imagine making something yourself, and today I am left wondering if part of the reason I've been waking up writing isn't all the art I've looked at and all the reading I've done over the past few days.

ohh I love the ice/glass sewing machines! Fantastic! The irons are kind of funny. Look like penguins. But the sewing machines are beautiful.
