Exhibit: Fiber Without Borders
September 13 - November 7
Fiber Without Borders, a juried exhibition of 2D and 3D work exploring fiber materials in fresh, original ways, opens Friday, September 13 at the Glen Arbor Arts Center, 6031 S. Lake Street, Glen Arbor. A reception to launch the exhibition is 6 – 8 pm at the gallery.
A revolution in the use of fiber materials – from wool, to paper, to plastic, to fruit skins — as the basis for art making began in the 1960s and has continued unabated to the present time. Fiber Without Borders exhibits contemporary work that:
- Acknowledges fiber’s functional roots and contexts, but does not stop there.
- Examines contemporary social issues.
- Finds innovative uses of fiber materials.
- Moves beyond the expected applications and/or re-examines the conventional ways in which we understand fiber to discover new contexts.
