Stop by the library during the month of June to view Peggie Thomas' fiber arts work in our Quiet Room.
"Much of my work captures the history and emotion of the world I see while driving the back roads of Arizona and the Western United States. I marvel at how time affects natural and man-made items. Creating skeletons out of plants, carving cliffs out of sandstone, and turning abandoned objects into rusted relics are all a result of time. I am intrigued by the journey these items have taken before crossing my path and am inspired to create art from their natural, often decayed, beauty. Fiber is my medium. I alter the fabric with paint, stitch, rust dye, and image transfer. My art often includes copper, wood, or other found objects to bring the stories of the natural world into my work."
