Artist Linda George
I love the color, texture and feel of fibers in my hands and the connection to women down through the ages. Those women spun, wove and knitted of necessity, whereas I can do this for the sheer pleasure of creating.
Most of my weaving is functional and I hope it also brings some beauty to everyday settings; towels or placemats for the kitchen, rugs for the home or some wearable art in scarves or shawls.
I have entered many gallery shows at Liberty Town Arts Workshop, including the annual Patron’s Show; Artful Dimensions first juried show this spring; and Fiber: Exploring Today and Remembering Yesterday at the Verizon Gallery on the Annandale Campus of Northern Virginia Community College.
Awards: Ribbons for handspun yarn at Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival,
Montpelier Fall Fiber Festival and Southeast Animal Fiber Festival in
Liberty Town Arts Workshop Patron’s Show – third prize for a woven
Liberty Town Arts Workshop show “Summer Solstice, 2017” – Honorable mention for woven lace shawl
