Abq FAF Mixed Media and Knitting Exhibits

The mixed media exhibit is the first one I saw when we walked in, and at that point I was a bit confused and thought it was the only exhibit. Anyway, I think this was my favorite exhibit out of all of them, even the knitting exhibit. Maybe it’s because there isn’t really a “traditional” way to do mixed media pieces, but I’ve always found them to be much more consistently unique and personally expressive than other genres of fiber work. Some of the pictures are quite blurry, I apologize, but these ones were all taken with my phone and some are the very first ones I took with my phone, before I figured out how to get the best pictures out of it.

I thoroughly enjoyed the knitting exhibit as well, of course. I say knitting exhibit but this is actually the hand knitting exhibit, there was also a machine knitting exhibit which I didn’t look at very closely or take pictures of. I don’t dislike machine knitting but it just doesn’t interest me, and the finished pieces just never seem as complex, at least the ones I’ve seen. There were two or three more beautiful lace shawls in the exhibit that I took pictures of but I haven’t posted them because they came out so blurry that even I won’t  make you look at them. Which is a shame really, cause they’re beautiful pieces.

I’ve really only got one exhibit left that I have many pictures of, and that’s the quilt exhibit. I also have a few pictures of the sewn garments exhibit and the youth exhibit, but that’s a total of about 6 pieces combined on those two. So those exhibits will be what’s coming up next, and then I’ll have to start actually putting work into my posts again! 😉
