Sandy Adair at ArtWalk
Sandy Adair, a Boone fiber artist, is this week’s featured artist at ArtWalk.
Adair weaves wool tapestries based on landscapes, from images of Blue Ridge views, Western vistas, and more.
Adair works closely with clients, some being interior designers and others individuals wishing to have photographs turned into woven art. She brings nearly three decades of expertise to her art, and her pieces are displayed in numerous homes and institutions in Western North Carolina and beyond.
“The Blue Ridge mountain landscape surrounding my home has been a continuing source of inspiration to me,” she said.
Adair’s woven interpretations of local geological features are almost photographic, with her adept layering of colors and textures bringing the mountains to life in fiber. The selections of her work available at ArtWalk feature these lush mountain scenes, such as the pictured “Spring Planting in Valle Crucis,” rendered in shades of blue and green wool yarns.
In addition to original tapestries, Adair offers framed prints of her textiles and a selection of wool yarns. Visit Sandy Adair’s website, http://www.fibredesignsandyadair.com, for extensive images of her work.
