ART EXHIBITION: “LAYERS OF PERCEPTION”
Innovation in textile art and surface design

Opening Reception: November 19, 4-6 PM

The holiday exhibition in the Museum Gallery is “Layers of Perception,” showcasing innovation in textile art and surface design techniques by 15 regional artists.

A reception takes place on Saturday November 19 from 4 to 6 pm. The public is invited to join in celebrating with the artists. Nibbles and wine will be served. There is no charge for admission.

Layers

The jury-selected work on display represents unique approaches to textile art, where old ways and new technologies commingle.  By challenging traditionally conceived “craft” materials and redefining their context, sourced items as varied as LED lights and vintage sheet music are reinvented, showcasing the role of textiles as a visually communicative and diverse art form. The artistic use of hand-dyes, paint, photographs, stamps, and a myriad of materials embellish and enhance the work.

Selected artists are: Diana Acevedo, Linda Cassirer, Isabel Downs, Linda Estrada, Ranell Hansen, Belinda Hart, Patti Hunter, Gay McNeal, Lorna Morck, Kristin Otte, Judy Rys, Patty Six, Lou Ann Smith, Jeanne Surber, and Susan West.

Exhibition programing includes five demonstration days highlighting various surface design techniques, and a holiday workshop.
