FELT: Fiber Transformed

FELT: Fiber Transformed was 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 were 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 included 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.”
