Art From Near and Far , Fabric & Mixed Media Art from all over the world

We spent all day yesterday , rearranging, cleaning the Gallery and hanging our first official Exhibit. 
"Art from Near and Far"  it is a collection of fiber art Postcards, Journal pages, Atcs and Inchies from all over the world, that I have received in swaps that I participated in since 2006.There are amazing artists all over this world and when they work in a small size, their designs and quality of artistry is condensed to a piece of art that carries with it its weight in gold.

There are pieces that are thread painted landscapes,. hand dyed lace flowers, button fairy Atcs and more.  There are over 150 pieces displayed (we ran out of room)  That will inspire anyone to be creative and think outside the box.

And the incredible thing is I have never met any of these artists in person, only talked to them through emails and yahoo posts.   Yet each and everyone put their all into their work and sent work I will be proud to share for years to come. Many are from Overseas, England, Spain, New Zealand, Denmark, and more....

Check out some of the pictures...


Why I create (my new name Lorri Lee Glennon)

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
