Opening Reception this Friday, March 3
Join us this Friday, Feb 3, 5-7pm in the gallery for the opening reception of FELT: Fiber Transformed. This exhibition of contemporary fiber art works created from felt will be on view in the gallery March 3-April 16, 2023. It includes works by 20 artists who explore this tactile medium to create a wide range of diverse art works.
FELT: Fiber Transformed is held in partnership with Fiber Art Now, a quarterly magazine that also creates exhibitions for print and gallery venues. The print version of the exhibition appeared in Summer 2022 issue of the magazine, selections of which are on view at GAC. The exhibition was juried by Jane Dunnewold, an internationally recognized teacher and lecturer in the fiber arts. She has exhibited her work in throughout the world, and she is the recipient of numerous awards. In 2020, her archives were acquired by the International Quilt Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Works in the exhibition include felted sculptures, wall-hung objects and wearable items. In juror Dunnewold’s words, the selections “represent works that are technically accomplished in the use of felt or felting, exhibiting seamless relationships between color, materials, and form.” She also notes that many of the images and themes portray the artists’ passions—nature, social justice/commentary, or humor—and that “mastery of technique is valuable, but using…skills to express a vision is invaluable.”
Opening Reception is free and open to all.
