Recently I visited the Fuller Craft Museum which is currently showing several fascinating exhibits related to fiber. They include Game Changers: Fiber Art Masters and Innovators, featuring well known fiber art masters such as Michael James, Arturo Alonzo Sandoval, and Chunghie Lee, as well as lesser known but quite innovative artists who use fiber in surprising ways.

Another exhibit, Floating, features the work of Annette Bellamy, an artist and commercial fisher from Alaska. Below are examples of her work, including a large piece created entirely from fish skins. Bellamy works in several media, but her fish skin piece was particularly compelling.

These exhibits are on view through the fall and are well worth seeing.
