California Fibers: A Closer Look

Beatrice Wood Center For The Arts


California Fibers: A Closer Look coincides with and celebrates the 50th anniversary of the founding of California Fibers, a group that supports artistic growth and professional advancement for contemporary Southern California artists working in fiber media. All works in the exhibition address the theme “a closer look” as interpreted by each artist, from imagery and inspiration to materials and processes.

“The work in this exhibition features contemporary art utilizing media and processes rooted in the earliest forms of human endeavor,” says Kevin Wallace, Director of the Center. “There are cutting-edge works in weaving, basketry, sculpture, quilting, embroidery, felting, surface design, knitting, crochet, wearables, and mixed media.”
California Fibers: A Closer Look features diverse works created by eighteen members of California Fibers: Linda Anderson, Olivia Batchelder, Charlotte Bird, Marilyn Chaffee, Doshi, Polly Jacobs Giacchina, Lydia Tjioe Hall, Susan Henry, Chari Myers, Serge Nepomnin, Kathy Nida, Carol Nilsen, Liz Oliver, Michael Rohde, Rebecca Smith, Cameron Taylor-Brown, Debby Weiss and Peggy Wiedemann.
