Jeannie Ortiz exhibited her Perception cloak & Leaf Cape for December 2022.  Two phenomenal pieces masterfully crafted by this amazing textile artist.

She writes the following about Perception:  

Threads spanning time and tugging at remembrances. Remembering what I was thinking as I wove the first threads onto my loom, remembering the flooding emotions in the hot fall sun after my dad died, remembering the joyous exploration in new forms with gloved hands on a cloudy winter day, remembering the time when all we had were our blankets to keep us warm.  Long memories, dreams, or daydreams.

We were so lucky to have these on display in December!

A full description and further photos are available on Jeannie's website.
