Each writer, photographer, artist, and composer began with the same simple strands of perception and experience available to all of us.
But in the mind’s eye they envisioned the finished work, three-dimensional and full of color.
Keeping that vision before them, they did the work: shearing, carding, dyeing, spinning, and finally weaving. Perhaps unraveling and reweaving over and over again until it was right.
Here are their finished tapestries, full of color, melody, insight, spirit, and testimony. These are winning entries in the 1989 New Era Writing, Art, Photography, and Music Contest.
