Fiber artists exhibit quilt works at NOVA-Loudoun’s Waddell Gallery
April 24, 2013
The Waddell Gallery will exhibit Somewhere Else: Studio Quilts by New Image Artists.
The New Image Artists group, which includes nationally and internationally-exhibited artists, is presenting 20 pieces of fiber art at the Waddell Gallery on Northern Virginia Community College’s Loudoun Campus.
Each artist designed a unique yard of fabric, had it professionally printed, and then used their own media and manipulations to create a new work of fiber art.
Each of the artists shared a duplicate piece of the original printed fabric with a colleague who could use the fabric in any way she desired. The shared work became part of a new piece of fiber art -- sometimes subtle and sometimes obvious.
All works will be shown with swatches of the original fabrics, artists’ journals of the processes they used and a catalog of the exhibition. The exhibition was curated by Trudi Van Dyke.
Artists include: B. J. Adams, Mary Beth Bellah, Jeanne Benson, Sara Brown, Candace Edgerley, Lesly-Claire Greenberg, Catherine Kleeman, Verena Levine, Dominie Nash, Sue Pierce and Ginny Smith.
The exhibition runs from Monday, May 13, 2013 through Friday, June 14, 2013. A gallery talk will be held on Wednesday, June 12, 2013, at 11 a.m.
Northern Virginia Community College, 1000 Harry Flood Byrd Highway, Sterling, VA, 20164. The Waddell Gallery is located on the first floor of the Waddell Building (LW) on NOVA’s Loudoun Campus.
There is no cost to visit the gallery or to attend the gallery talk on June 12.
