Angels Gate Cultural Center and Curator Jean Clad present Fiber/Fabric, an exhibition exploring the fiber or fabric related work of twelve artists. From industrial felt to hemp-based particleboard, the twelve artists weave, bend, sew, re-form and join materials to realize personal visions and compellingly demonstrate the range of potential of fiber and fabric as media.
Seeking to expand the viewers' awareness of the possibility inherent in non-traditional art mediums, artist Linda Ekstrom manipulates the works of Emily Dickenson, William Shakespeare and the Bible into sculptural forms that function as commentaries and monuments to those works. Michael Lewis Miller's Stacked Painting, a stacked pile of colorful, abstract felt shapes, asks the viewer to take the dramatic action of throwing it into the air to complete it. Slater Barron forms colored lint into surprisingly accurate replicas of food. Dan Olfe merges digital wizardry and traditional in quilts, and Edith Abeyta's installation of freshly baked bread and a variety of industrial hemp products questions our relationship to fiber itself.
