2021 – Bumblebunching – Warped, Twisted, & Imperfect
This juried fiber arts exhibition celebrating happy accidents, successful satisfaction in Wabi-Sabi, and unintended artistic experiences that often lead to evolutionary forms of expression and joyful acceptance that experimentation is part of one’s art practice. Fiber Artists yearn for thorough planning and tight intention, gratification in challenging practice, and ritual appreciation and amusement in transience and incomplete mistakes. Bumblebunching are the exuberant jumbled loops created by the bobbin when stitching has improper tension while machine sewing.
“Bumblebunching” exhibition artists include Lynn Baritelle, Honey Bliss, Renne Emiko Brock, Donna Lee Dowdney, Liisa Fagerlund, Susanne Foster, Peggy St. George, Leslie Hoex, Estelle Jackson, Susan Kroll, Jacki Moseley, Kelly Ruth, Susan Savage, Gloria Skovronsky, Marla Varner, and Jean Wyatt.
Exhibit Dates: October 1 – November 27, 2021
