The Green Phoenix Gallery to Feature Fiber Artist, Heidi Wetzel


The Green Phoenix Gallery is pleased to feature award winning local fiber artist and basket weaver Heidi Wetzel on Friday, June 2, from 5-8 pm, during Easton’s First Friday Gallery Walk. The public is invited to meet and talk with Heidi, and watch her work.

“I like to mix textures and patterns, and often combine [traditional fibers] with bark, grasses, sisal, seagrass, yarn, ribbons, and anything else that lends itself to weaving. I especially like to use materials from nature, which also include driftwood, bones, feathers, turtle shells, acorns, pine cones, and so many other things. The possibilities are unlimited.” Heidi’s work ranges from traditional woven baskets, to sculptured forms in fiber, to contemporary wall hangings. She has developed a reputation for creating beautiful and unusual works that are superbly crafted.

The Green Phoenix Gallery always features a unique and beautiful selection of fine handmade crafts by local artists, and Fair Trade gifts from around the world. You will find interesting items for all ages — from charming wooden toys to lovely seaglass jewelry, from colorful scarves, handbags and totes to whimsical mobiles– something for everyone. There is also an impressive collection of attractive ceramics, quilted wall hangings, woven baskets, fragrant soaps and lotions, and an excellent array of seasonal items for your special shopping needs.  There is an exclusive, ongoing exhibit of original plein air and studio oil paintings by award-winning local artist, Diane DuBois Mullaly, with new works fresh from her easel added each month. In addition, FRIVOLOUS FIBERS Yarn Boutique, (now located inside The Green Phoenix) features a sumptuous new collection of gorgeous, hand-spun, and hand-dyed yarns.

The public is invited to The Green Phoenix Gallery for all ‘First Friday Gallery Walks’, from 5 pm until 8 pm each month, to meet the featured local artist and enjoy some wine, finger foods, good company, and conversation. We hope to see you there! The Green Phoenix Gallery is located at 31 N Harrison St, Easton. 410-822-7554. Open Monday – Saturday 10 am – 5pm, and Sundays from 11 am – 3 pm.
