Connecting Threads: From the utilitarian to the purely decorative, fiber art is one of humanities oldest art forms. This exhibit will feature the wide range of modern fiber arts including, but not limited to, weaving, art quilts, felting, basketry, soft sculpture, embroidery, and hand-dyed textiles.
The subject of fiber arts is very broad, including many disciplines, skills and techniques, any one of which could be used to build a show upon. Connecting Threads attempts to bring together many of these in a harmonious relationship. A respectful nod to the creativity of our grandmothers, while we move forward to more fully express ourselves in today’s world. My respect and admiration for the fiber arts is a life-long obsession.
