I was honored to be selected as the juror for this exhibit and want to share with you the fabulous work of all the participating artists. The event was postponed for a year due to COVID, so in reviewing the catalog a full year later…a must see…I am in awe of the quality of the quilts, in composition, design and innovation. More information can be found through the catalog link at the end of this post. Enjoy! from the studio…from many studios!
Elizabeth Bennett – Falling Objects No. 3: Silence
Textiles in Translation (SAQA Regional)
The Gallery at Penn College
Williamsport, Pennsylvania, USA
June 1 – July 22, 2021
Textiles in Translation is a collection of fiber-based artwork by Pennsylvania regional members of SAQA. The juried exhibit will showcase a wide range of 2D and 3D fiber art and highlight a diverse range of styles and techniques.
Fiber work stretches back to ancient times and has grown and developed across the centuries into a vibrant art form, encompassing a variety of materials and processes from low to high tech. Today’s fiber artists create beauty, provoke thought, resist convention, and challenge the status quo. The work in this show helps to reinforce fiber art’s unique place in the world of contemporary art.
Textiles in Translation is juried by Susan Szajer, a full-time mixed media artist living in New Mexico who enjoys both the spontaneous nature of painting and the challenge of textiles. She finds joy in pushing artwork to the edge while still maintaining good design, composition, and attention to detail. The exhibit is curated by SAQA Pennsylvania Regional Exhibition Director, and former SAQA Pennsylvania Regional Representative, Meredith Eachus Armstrong.
