March 9 – April 15
Opening Reception: March 9, 5-8pm
Featuring the Surface Design Association of Washington State
The intention of this exhibit is to showcase the depth and breadth of the surface designer's work in Washington State. The exhibition will contain original, innovative artwork which is technically of high quality and which results in a show of overall high impact. The concept of "Fiber Fusion" is totally up to the interpretation of the artist.
"Surface design refers to any process that gives structure, pattern, or color to fiber. Fibers used could include handmade felt, paper, fabric, clothing or basket-making materials, among others. To these surface designers dye, paint, print, stitch, bead, and otherwise enhance or embellish. More than the methods, surface designers are interested in the unlimited options for experimenting with color, texture, and design" - surfacedesign.org
