Gallery Seven

A Juried Exhibition of Fine Art Fiber
June 5th - July 21st

Artists' Reception
Saturday, June 16th from 7-9 p.m.

For centuries, artists have used fiber and a variety of techniques to produce artwork. In Europe, between the fourteenth and seventeenth centuries woven tapestries would hang on the wall in place of paintings, while in the Middle East artists were creating beautifully woven rugs that depicted symbols and intricate designs. Today, besides the traditional fiber materials like cotton, linen or wool there are also synthetic materials such as plastic that are incorporated into the artwork.

The 8 New England artists that were juried into the show by Erica Licea-Kane, Assistant Professor in the Art Department and Director of the Towne Art Gallery at Wheelock College are: Sandy Gregg, Kay Hartung, Sharon McCartney, Nancy Morgan, Stacey Piwinski, Marjorie Durko Puryear, Wen Redmond and Mara Taylor.
