2016 PBS Traveling Library Display

The beadwork in the 2016 show highlights the creativity which emerges when a challenge stretches  some artists and liberates others.   The theme of the display is wearable beadwork inspired by Wassily Kandinsky’s “Blue Segment”, 1921.  Whether inspired by his shapes and colors, the music which came to mind when looking at the painting or the feelings evoked, a delightful collection of beadwork emerged.  From representational pieces to new abstract creations, you will enjoy a bead adorned hat, different styles of bracelets, a wide range of necklace designs, a ring and even a fascinator.   

Many PBS members took up the Margaret M. Scovil bead challenge this year.  We are happy to include 12 pieces in this show.  Thanks to the following bead artists for participating in the display:  Kim Baird, Karen Bettin, Susan Borts, Pamela Jensen, L. Kasey Klaus, Carol Perrenoud, Rose Rushbrooke, Teresa Shelton, Karmen Schmidt, Merle Sherman, Maxi Starr and Janis VanWyhe.
