Fiber art focus of JRB exhibit 

Just as people need more fiber in their diet, they need more fiber in their art. Answering the call for that recommended daily allowance is an exhibit of fiber art by Martha Green, now on display through Christmas Eve at JRB Art at The Elms, 2810 N. Walker.

The Paseo exhibit features themed quilts, fabric dolls and handmade books, all created with such sewing necessities as:
" buttons,
" threads,
" fabrics,
" sequins,
" charms,
" lace and
" good ol' ingenuity.

According to Joy Reed Belt, owner of JRB Art, the exhibit is comprised of "more than 100 pieces "? anything from very large quilts to as small as Christmas ornaments."
