The Fiber in Art



The Wood Turning Center has an interesting spin on fiber art as part of a citywide celebration for all things fiber. “7 Visions: Wood as Fiber” will be opening on First Friday in March and features the work of Dorothy Gill Barnes, Michael Brolly, Markku Kosonen (work shown above), Dona Look, Bill Luce, Debra Sachs, and Jack Slentz.

There is an International Fiber Symposium being presented by the University of the Arts that addresses "issues about the state of contemporary Fiber, Textiles and material studies, and interrogate, debate and consider the place of Fiber and Textiles as an expressive force at this time." Other exhibitions and events are happening throughout the month of March and beyond.
