Art In The Library
Journey to the Junkyard
Come to the Sisters Library and see the results when a local quilting group to a trip to a junk yard!
The Journeys Quilting Group of Sisters will display their work in the Sisters Library Community Room during the month of October.
These quilting artists search for ideas that will challenge their creativity and pull out a different perspective from the ordinary.
Journey to the Junkyard was born from the group’s trip to a local junkyard where they found, not only ideas, but inspiration and beauty in the simplicity of our discarded items.
Just wait until you see the images that tell a story from the abstract to the colorful-you’ll be amazed at the diversity spawned from their junkyard journey.
