Local native animals are subjects of an exhibit of fabric art by Northfield artist Toni Easterson at River Bend Nature Center in Faribault. Easterson’s fourteen portraits reveal her close connections to the animals she sees from her window - a mink, an egret, a turtle, a rabbit, a bluebird, among others. She uses fabric pieces given to her by friends and transformes them into remarkable creatures. An egret’s plume, for example, was part of a lace wedding gown.
