Joining Lysne at the exhibit will be Osborn, who creates sculptured pieces, usually of animals, by felting with wool fibers. Most of her work is in needle felting, but she has begun to incorporate wet felting into her art this spring.
"I do not recall a time when I was not drawing, and the need to create things is like a hunger which must be fulfilled in some way," Osborn said.

The exhibit is free and open to the public in the NWMAC gallery, located inside the River Walk Artists Shop and Gallery at the Riverwalk Centre.
