works in fibre
March 3 – 26, 2017
Opening Reception Friday March 3, 7 – 9:30pm
FIBREoptiks presents some of the alternative methods being explored by artists working within the medium of fibre in contemporary art. Traditional methods such as embroidery, quilting, fabric printing, hand sewing, and applique are referenced – however the work included in this exhibition is firmly rooted outside the realm of functional craft. Tactile surfaces, the juxtaposition of materials, and specific colour strategies are shared concerns, while unusual formats incorporating fibre into sculpture and painting are also investigated.
