EXHIBIT ON VIEW: January 13 – February 24, 2018
The exhibition “HANDCRAFTED: Fiber Art & Turned Wood” will be on view from January 13 through February 24, 2018 in the Kay Gallery.
Exhibit Description: The regional juried exhibition HANDCRAFTED: Fiber Art & Turned Wood presents the work of contemporary artists and fine craft artisans working in fiber art and turned wood. The exhibit will feature works of fiber art that employ traditional and experimental materials that are woven or stitched using textile techniques which include weaving, quilting, embroidery, beading, felting, crochet, knitting, lacework, hooking, sewing, spinning, tapestry, and mixed media along with current innovations in this evolving medium. Fiber Art entries will be judged by Camille Anne Brewer, Curator of Contemporary Art at the George Washington University Textile Museum in Washington, DC. HANDCRAFTED will also include a variety of functional, sculptural, and creative turned wood pieces created using the lathe, hand-held tools, and a steady hand to carve original spindle and faceplate turnings, often combining new techniques and materials, to demonstrate the range of forms which can
be achieved on a rotating axis. Turned Wood entries will be juried by Fleur Bresler, a collector of turned wood who is a Commissioner for the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.
