Reception: Sunday, July 22, 2-5 p.m. 
Gallery Hours: Wednesday-Friday, 11-4; Saturday, from 11-2

Writes Elizabeth Busch: "Having been an artist all my life and an 'art quilter' since 1983, I've come to realize that my art work is all about process. Whether I am airbrushing, spreading Textile Paint on canvas taped to my table top, hand quilting or weaving painted acetate strips through plastic netting for one of my large kinetic sculptures, I am responding to that voice within that tells me today it's time to make art.

This is the place to find out everything you want to know, show or tell about fiber art and farms.
