Held in conjunction with the 2010 Fantastic Fiber Competition/Exhibition and National Quilt Show
Yeiser Art Center
What do Hannah Montana, Fess Parker, Bill Monroe and The National Quilt Museum have in common? They all contributed recipes to “Favorite Recipes of Kentucky Celebrities.” In the spirit of Kentucky neighborliness, you are invited to take a lighthearted peek into the personal recipe files of celebrities from all across Kentucky, as well as those who have strong ties to the Bluegrass State. This is just what “Favorite Recipes of Kentucky Celebrities” gives you an opportunity to do. The cookbook has more than 300 recipes from local and national personalities, highly visible Kentucky businesses, artist, writers, athletes, sportsmen, actors, musicians, bed and breakfasts, restaurants, notable events and places. In addition, there are brief notes with each recipe on the contributor. Kentucky author Pamela Whinnery will be at the Yeiser Art Center to sign copies of the cookbook, with proceeds going to the Yeiser Art Center. 10 a.m.-4 p.m. For more info, contact Pamela, 270.554.5332.
More on the 2010 Fantastic Fiber Exhibit!
The response to this year’s Fantastic Fibers Competition/Exhibition has been nothing short of…well, fantastic! Contemporary and innovative artworks created with fiber as the primary medium from three continents will be on display at the Yeiser Art Center during the month of April. Panoply of materials, techniques and processes take the form of two-dimensional wall hangings, three-dimensional object and sculpture, wearable art, and temporary installations. Techniques include embroidery, quilting, felting, tapestry, braiding, weaving, basketry, and a variety of mixed media, non-traditional processes. Materials range from traditional cotton, silk, and wool to a wide range of synthetic fibers and manmade materials.
Three jurors chose 56 works created by 45 fiber artists from
Lima, Peru; Durban, South Africa; and 25 states including Hawaii and the District of Columbia. Close to 600 entries were submitted by 137 fiber artists from Belgium, Canada, England, Germany, Peru, South Africa, and from 38 states.
