I’m happy to be participating in an exhibit at the Sawtooth Center here in Winston exploring contemporary artworks in fiber. The opening reception is this Friday, Feb 7th, from 5 – 7 pm. Should be a lot of fun, so please join us if you can. There will be a loom that visitors can weave on as well as models mingling and modeling wearable fiber works.
I have several large-scale art quilts in the exhibit and a new “fiber sketch” piece that’s part of my current exploration, Ophelia’s Swim Team Studies. The show is up through March 11th, so if you can’t make it to the reception you can stop by any time the gallery is open. It will be an interesting show, based on the in-progress look I had last Saturday. More info about the opening and the exhibit below and here.
ALSO: If you’re in Greensboro and looking for something to do this Friday, my friend Katie Podracky’s collaborative project involving 500 students from 7 public schools recreating the 1963 March on Washington in life-size packing tape sculptures is something you should not miss. You can read more about the project here and it’s open through the 14th, so check it out and celebrate what art in our schools can accomplish!
I know not all of you are nearby or able to visit all my shows, but I like to share them so you can be there in spirit. Thanks again for all your support!
MORE INFO: Join us for the opening reception of the Fiberworks show Friday, February 7th from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm in the Eleanor & Egbert Davis Gallery. The opening and exhibit are free and open to the public.
This exhibition showcases a wide range of stylistic expression through fiber. Cayce Lee’s installation work combines traditional technique with non-traditional media, such as screening and plastic wrap. Woodie Anderson approaches fiber as a multi-media exploration utilizing quilting, stitching and screen printing. Vickie Clontz, Pat Mauck, Pat Taylor and Joanna White create unique, one-of-a-kind wearable art displaying their expertise in felting, weaving, quilting and surface design.
One of Sawtooth’s looms will be available during the reception for visitors willing to try out a “weaving” experience.
Sawtooth “Lights Up” During Reception
At 6:45 pm, witness the special unveiling of our new handcrafted sign for our Marshall Street entrance, illuminating our presence in downtown Winston-Salem. The sign will be dedicated and lit for the first time on Friday during the opening.
The program will include comments from Jim Sparrow, President/CEO of The Arts Council of Winston-Salem & Forsyth County, and JoAnne Vernon, Executive Director of the Sawtooth School. A City of Winston-Salem Proclamation from the Office of the Mayor will be presented at that time as well.
This will be a truly fun and interactive gallery opening. See you there!
