Summer fun

Jurors: Nancy pollack and kay lettau

Statement:

The long days of summer evoke leisure—and day dreams. How we while away the abundance, in every sense, of summer hours sets the theme for this show. In their statement, jurors Nancy Pollack and Kay Lettau noted, "We had our own ‘summer fun’ jurying this show. Watercolor effects, seaside themes, and bright colors stood out as evocative of vacations and oceans. This show will keep summer in our minds all year." 

 

The jurors selected Gladys Seaward’s beaded amethyst cabochon necklace, Joyce Keister’s dress, and Elizabeth Davison’s “Zinnias” wall quilt for special recognition. Non-themed work is also exhibited in the show.


Recognitions:

Joyce Keister, dress, $199

Gladys Seaward, beaded amethyst cabochon necklace, $310

Elizabeth Davison, "Zinnias," wall quilt, $600

Joan Hutten is attracted to the fiber arts because of the limitless possibilities of the materials. She loves experimenting with color and texture, working with a variety of techniques, and manipulating her materials in unconventional ways to create unique and visually beautiful art and wearable art.

Eileen Doughty loves the concept of "place.” Her training as a cartographer has informed her fiber art, since both require understanding how people view and interpret colors, pattern, and symbols. Currently her work focuses on exploring fiber art’s unique qualities: texture, a "canvas" not limited to a rectangle, and employing three rather than two dimensions. Contemporary fiber art may incorporate mixed media, and she considers any material fair game to make her idea corporeal.

Lynne Hoffman uses hand-dyed fabric as the base for her collages. The suppleness and fluidity of fabric, the way it takes color, and its texture all speak to the way she sees the world. Fabric: subtle or vibrant, smooth or coarse, fragile or tough, transparent or opaque. Inspired by life and nature her collages are made up of pieces fitting together, seemingly haphazard, yet in an ordered, deliberate fashion.
