EXHIBITIONISTA: “Alternative Fiber”

June 3 @ 11:00 am - July 30 @ 5:00 pm

FREE

In celebration of alternative uses of fiber and textile material, The Louise Hopkins Underwood Center for the Arts  (LHUCA) is proud to present:

Alternative Fiber: A National Juried Exhibition.

In recent years the use of fiber and textile has greatly expanded creating art that no longer easily fits into the category of craft.  New art has been constructed utilizing these materials in both sculptural, two dimensional, and even installation practice.  LHUCA’s exhibition will focus on these ideas as we aim to create a juried art show highlighting the many alternative ideas present in these mediums.

I have two pieces in this exciting exhibition!
“Hopes and Fears and…” which won HONORABLE MENTION!
and
“Torrent and Tangle: Keep Your House in Order

Juror: Karena Bennett: Over the last two decades, Karena has worked with a variety of arts organizations across the Northwest ranging from small galleries to higher education institutions including most recently the Confluence Project and Caldera Arts. Currently, she serves as Executive Director of Surface Design Association (SDA), an international non-profit focused on fiber art and design. Since 1977, SDA has promoted artists around the world through exhibitions, events, and its quarterly publication, Surface Design Journal.
