"A Weaver's Journal of Endangered Wildflowers" by fiber artist Carol Irving is on display at the Fine Line Creative Arts Center in St. Charles until Nov. 23.

ST. CHARLES – The Kavanagh Gallery at Fine Line Creative Arts Center displays a collection of 12 woven panels titled "A Weaver's Journal of Endangered Wildflowers" by fiber artist Carol Irving through Nov. 23 in St. Charles.

Irving, born and raised in Detroit, earned a degree in botany, a news release stated. She learned to weave while in college and began to explore the art form in her spare time. Over the years, Irving has taken many classes and workshops from noted weavers, as well as winning awards and honors in juried arts and fiber shows. Her work has been included in a recently published book, "The Art of Weaving."

The panels in the Fine Line show are a reflection of Irving's interests, travels and research in the botanical world of Michigan. She has said she hopes to bring attention to the state's many wildflowers and the real danger that many could be lost.

Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Admission is free. The Fine Line is at 37W570 Bolcum Road. For more information, visit fineline.org or call 630-584-9443.
