Jo Manginelli has had a lifetime addiction to fiber which eventually led her to weaving in 1997. Her weaving exhibits her love of texture and color as well as her interest in playing with the various structures weaving has to offer. She enjoys weaving with a multitude of fibers; from organic cotton, wool/silk and bison to ribbon and paper. Anything she finds is an opportunity for experimentation at her loom. Jo enjoys every moment she has in her studio creating her woven wearable art among the pines in Prescott, AZ
She is also a member of the local weaver’s guild as well as a member of a local artist group and has shown her work at their annual art show for the last seven years.
Debra Salazar is a local fiber artist using wool roving to create whimsical animal sculptures. The process to create them is called needle felting. Each has their very own personality sometimes serene or full of mischief and occasionally just plain grumpy.
Lisa Griest creates mixed media figures, puppets, and assemblages using paperclay, encaustic, paint, wood, and anything else she can get her hands on.
