Not Your Grandma's Fiber Show
Already the Free Press is calling this show Avant Guard. Join us this Sunday January 16th from 1-4PM for a champagne reception.
The exhibit features wall pieces, quilts, clothing, fiber sculptures and so much more. The pieces will have a couple of things in common — they will be avant-garde and ecclectic.
We want to give a whole new meaning to what fiber art is!!!
Brooks Harris Stevens, a guest curator from Eastern Michigan University, said fiber art is derived from the tradition of textile arts. It’s a flexible genre that doesn’t have to fit the dichotomy of being only functional or only decorative.
She will display her work, and EMU student's work based on concepts using textile materials and a diversity of techniques. “This keeps people interested, and at the same time, curious as to how things can be pushed further for the next piece,” she said.
