Fiber art exhibit
The Friends of the Redmond Library Art Committee is pleased to announce a collection of fiber art created by local artists. The show will be up until the end of September and features the work of Mary Stiewig, Charlene Kenny and Jan Erickson.
Charlene Kenny has been quilting for seven years and was awarded the Best Use of Recycled Materials for her entry in the 2011 Sisters Quilt Show. Mary Stiewig has a background in traditional quilting but now goes beyond the traditional by altering and embellishing fabric. Kenny and Steiwig both belong to the Journeys Art quilt group in Sisters.
Jan Erickson has shown her fiber art throughout the Northwest. Oregon State University awarded her first place in their annual Art About Agriculture show and purchased the piece for their collection.
In the Silent Reading Room, artist Heidi Searle is showing her engaging and colorful watercolors of local landscapes and garden scenes. Heidi is new to watercolor and is inspired by Central Oregon’s beauty.

Dave Alvin at Sisters Folk Festival
Fresh off the release of his rave review album “Eleven Eleven,” Americana pioneer Dave Alvin will perform two sets during the Sept. 9, 10 and 11 Sisters Folk Festival .
Dave Alvin summed up his new album “Eleven Eleven” as well as anyone could when he quipped, “There are two types of folk music: quiet folk music and loud folk music. I play both.” Alvin shows off his skill on both sides of the volume divide on 2011’s “Eleven Eleven,” where he reaffirms his status as one of the best and most distinctive American songwriters alive.
