Linda G. Weghorst’s Artist Statement

In the words of Rod Stewart, “Every picture tells a story, doesn’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 is 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.
