Just because Burien Art Association’s fabulous “Bountiful Textures” exhibit at three venues is being held over from November, doesn’t mean the Burien Arts Gallery is not having an Artist’s Reception in December.

In December, Artists United will have a Small Works show with a variety of artworks by the member artists who volunteer at the gallery.  Their small pieces of original art or photographs make excellent presents for the holidays.

The Opening Reception is this Friday, Dec. 4, 5-8 p.m., at the Gallery, located at 826 SW 152nd Street.

Besides meeting the artists and viewing the Artists United new exhibit, reception-goers can enjoy the fantastic fiber art show at the Gallery.

“Bountiful Textures” presents works in textiles by Fiber 19 artists and baskets by Patricia Galvanin at the Gallery.

Fiber 19 is an eclectic group of mixed media fiber artists who meet to visit, support, critique and show their art.

They came together at the Fiber Arts Certificate Program at the University of Washington in 2008. Their graduating class numbered 19; hence the name Fiber 19.

A core group decided to continue to meet monthly. Fiber 19 artists have shown in Seattle, Lynnwood, Auburn and Port Orchard.

Because the exhibit is just too bountiful for one venue, internationally known fiber artists Sonia Grasvik and Gail Wax are presenting their fine-art quilts across the street at Skinperfect, 905 S.W. 152nd St.

And in downtown Burien, Town Square Fabric & Yarn, 445 S.W. 152nd St., features the fabulous quilts of local artist Deb Rychert. Deb has used her exceptional talents to create traditional and nontraditional quilts. She has taught quilt making at numerous locations throughout the Northwest and also in her native New England.

The exhibits continue through Dec. 26.
