The newest exhibit at Buffalo Niagara Heritage Village showcases over 40 works of nationally renowned and published fiber artist, Bobbie Fuhrmann. The exhibit includes many of the finest examples of her weaving, quilting and lacemaking.
The exhibit highlights the mastery of technique, mathematical precision and innovation in her work. Bobbie’s quilt In Depth, a 3,000-piece hand-quilted and sewn object, uses perspective, color and pattern to create the illusion of a 3-dimensionality. Many of her original bobbin-lace pieces and complex weavings can also be seen.
Come and enjoy this exhibit – it is a visual treat! See how the finest details combine to create depth, perspective and movement in these elaborate works.
The museum is open Tuesday-Friday 9:30-4:30 year round, June to Mid-October, Saturday and Sunday 12:30-4:30. The museum admission is $5.00 until June 2012, then admission will be $7.00
