Glen Arbor Arts Center [GAAC] September 13 – November 7, 2019. Come celebrate Fiber Without Borders, a juried exhibition of 2D and 3D work exploring fiber materials in fresh, original ways. A reception to launch the exhibition is Friday, September 13, 6-8 pm at the Glen Arbor Arts Center, 6031 S. Lake Street, Glen Arbor.
A revolution in the use of fiber materials – from wool, to paper, to plastic, to fruit skins — as the basis for art making began in the 1960s and has continued unabated to the present time. Fiber Without Borders exhibits contemporary work that:
Acknowledges fiber’s functional roots and contexts, but does not stop there.
Examines contemporary social issues.
Finds innovative uses of fiber materials.
Moves beyond the expected applications and/or re-examines the conventional ways in which we understand fiber to discover new contexts.
Fiber Without Borders continues through November 7. For more information go to GlenArborArt.org
