Finding Shelter: An Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber Art,

curated by Deborah Kuster

 

I was drawn to the artists selected for this exhibit because their diverse fiber art suggested pods, solace, protection, webbing, habitat, or comfort. This idea of shelter is broad—possibly as physical, emotional, interpersonal, environmental, or as finding shelter in the creative process itself.  My goal is that this exhibit will provide shelter for the viewer in some personal way.

 

The artists that have agreed to exhibit are:

 

Kate Anderson

Lanny Bergner                               Tom Lundberg

Eve Deisher                                    Nnemma Okore

Lindsay Ketterer Gates                  Ann Coddington Rast

Polly Jacobs Giacchina                  Amanda Salm

Andrea Graham                              Tucker Schwarz

Jan Hopkins                                    Jo Stealey

 

 

 

The exhibition is scheduled to open on January 21 and end February 18, 2016 at the Baum Gallery of the University of Central Arkansas, Conway, AR  (http://uca.edu/art/baum/exhibitions/)

 

Reception: Thursday, January 21, 2016, 4:00-6:00 p.m.

Gallery Talk with Fiber Artist Ann Coddington: Thursday, January 28, 2016, 5:00-6:00 p.m.

Public Lecture with Ann Coddington and Jo Stealey: Thurs, Jan 28, 2016, 6:00-7:00 p.m.
