Contemporary fabric and fiber artists know no limitations: They draw, paint, stamp, tear, print, photo-transfer, stain, rust, discharge, fold, stitch, weave, glue, batik, tie-dye, distress, and embellish with beads, buttons, lace, and trims in realistic, abstract, non-objective, conceptual, and surreal artworks.
This exhibition will feature numerous associated events, and will kick off a biennial juried art quilt festival in the new Southern Utah Museum of Art, beginning in 2014. The inaugural exhibition this year has evolved into an exciting, collaborative undertaking according to Deborah Snider. “Starting with our initial vision of the quilt exhibit, we have expanded into six weeks of amazing and connected special events,” says Snider. “The incredible network of talent that is building around this project includes the support and energy of students, faculty, staff, and members of our surrounding communities. The entire project is coming together in perfect harmony.”
In addition to the Everything in Between exhibition, the Gallery will sponsor a remarkable variety of Saturday programs during the exhibition’s run. For more information about these events, please visit the gallery website at www.edu/pva/artgallery beginning in mid-September.
