On Exhibit: Materiality

My altered book, The Fence Environment #1, will be on exhibit in a show called Materiality: A Fiber Arts Group Exhibition at the Ann Street Gallery in Newburgh, NY from March 15 - April 12, 2014.

Their website describes the show as, "Featuring more than forty works by twenty-three fiber artists who employ traditional and non-tradition techniques, the exhibition provides an opportunity to experience fiber art that focuses on the creative potential of incorporating diverse materials and alternative technologies into the medium. Through the use of fabric, paper or human hair, these artists employ a wide range of techniques that include hand-woven and computer-assisted weaving, mixed-media collage, casting, combining sewing with painting and sculpture to express their ideas."

This is the first time, in a decade or more, that I'm in a show where I don't know any of the other artists. It's very nice to be introduced to their work, and to have been invited to be in this exhibit.
