“Material Measurement – Magnitude, Meaning & Makers”
To inspire you and the next generation of fiber artists, the Fiber Arts Juried exhibition has a unique, accessible theme each year to inspire artists to create new works or bring out older works that they haven’t had occasions to share. This year the themed “Material Measurement – Magnitude, Meaning & Makers” exhibition is about vindicating the volume and importance of all fiber in its many forms while reflecting on textiles, tales, and talent through enlightenment, abundance, accumulation, and perception. Conspicuous consumption or considerate consequences, creators convey cloth’s transformation from meaningless mass into something that matters.
Fiber Artists included in the exhibition are Lynn Baritelle, Helga Barton, Beverly Biegle, Catherine Bilyard, Renne Emiko Brock, Debra Danielson, Lauralee DeLuca, Liisa Fagerlund, Marijane Figg, MarySue French, Debi Glass, Janet Green, Pamela Hastings, Leslie Hoex, Margie Kepner, Susan Kroll, Danielle Lawrence, Mary Liebsch, Connie Lobo, Donna McMillen, Sherry Nagel, Sue Nylander, Pat Oden, Noreen O’Neill, Betty Oppenheimer, Ilse Osier, Monica Quarto, Diane Ross, Sandy Schlechter, Alison Sell, Gloria Skovronsky, Stephanie Swenson, Marla Varner, Judy Warner, Diane Williams, Christie Wise, and Beth Witters.
The “Material Measurement – Magnitude, Meaning & Makers” exhibition is at the Sequim Museum & Arts at 175 West Cedar St., Sequim WA 98382 and will be on display October 1 – November 26, 2016.
