Fiber @ The Fitton Center for Creative Arts
To add to my trend of posting images of an exhibition after it closes I give you Fiber @ The Fitton Center for Creative Arts, which closed at the beginning of December. The Fitton is a beautiful facility and is incredibly managed by exhibitions director Cathy Mayhugh. The images show a small sampling of the overall talent and work the exhibition overall represented.
Fiber was described as : Four innovative artists who weave, print, dye and stitch their way to strong color and essential textures.
The evolution of Dorothy McGuinness’ painted paper woven forms is built on taking risks, avoiding the “known” in a world of basketry. (Everett, Washington)
Colorful and lavishly textured, Christine Sauer’s stitched and beaded dimensional works are an imaginative response to a love of the complexity found in nature and to the celebratory energy of her city. (New Orleans, Louisiana)
Taking the leap into experiments with vibrant pattern, Maria Shell’s newest Color Grid art quits dance boldly on the wall. (Anchorage, Alaska)
In wall works ranging from intimate to large in scale, Jonpaul Smith disassembles hand-printed and found papers, then weaves them into brilliant intricate constructions. (Cincinnati, Ohio)
