Just arrived home from a whirlwind weekend at FiberPhiladelphia with friends Jeanne Williamson and Merill Comeau. We whizzed around the great city taking in as much of the quality art exhibits that we could physically manage and I'm happy to report that ONE DAY was awarded an Honorable Mention in the exhibit Outside/Inside the Box at the Crane Arts Center. My friend Joetta Maue's piece WAKING WITH YOU was also awarded an Honorable Mention.
We met many new artists and enthusiasts, viewed innovative work and experienced several good talks. The event opened at Moore College of Art and Design with the keynote speaker Elissa Auther, Fiber in the 21st Century, a review of the increasing visibility of fiber in art and the unique role it plays in the expansion of artistic practice today. Friday morning we attended In Material at the Arthur Ross Gallery with Mi-Kyoung Lee and Lucy Arai, each talking about their approaches to material and process.
Here are a few images of the show....
