Linda G. Weghorst’s Statement

In the words of Rod Stewart, “Every picture tells a story, don’t it?”.  In my art “Every textile tells a story” of people and places I have experienced.  Pieces are characterized by figurative and stylized representation.  A plethora of techniques are used to illustrate concepts.  The challenge is to tell a story through the objects I make.  A story may be mine, but once seen, it becomes the viewers to consider, reflect upon or make their own.
