Art with fiber - on exhibit at the Atlantic Works Gallery

There are some pieces on exhibit at "Safe", at the Atlantic Works Gallery, in East Boston, MA, that have fiber in them.

James Jaxxa, "Flowerhawk" and "A-9 Flowerhawk", are both created with folded paper, foil, tape, staples, plastic beads and sequins.

Leigh Hall, "In or Out", is a drawing of a chain link fence, made of thin black electrical tape, that is applied directly on the wall.

Patricia Berube, "The Bathtub" is a painting that includes pieces of paper sewing patterns that are applied on the piece in a very subtle way.

And, my Orange Construction Fence Series #40 (shown above) is monoprinted and handpainted on fabric, stitched, and includes some yarn.

Safe is open Fridays and Saturdays from 2 to 6 pm, or by appointment, until August 29, 2008. If you can't visit the exhibit, you can see a selection of the work online.
