FIBER ALCHEMY: TWO VIEWPOINTS
Sandra Bender Fromson and Ellen Schiffman
October 14-November 27, 2016
Opening Reception Friday, Oct. 14 6 pm
Sandra Bender Fromson is primarily a fiber artist whose work incorporates felting, weaving, quilting, embroidery, and dyeing and she takes her inspiration for materials, colors, and textures from nature. Her textile pieces are presented in the context of their creation; her floor loom, shuttles, and garment patterns are part of the display.
Ellen Schiffman, a fiber artist working sculpturally, spent a year filling a shadow box per week with explorations of methods and materials. The resulting 52-box visual diary, presented as a cohesive whole and employing both traditional and experimental techniques, questions the boundaries of what fiber art can be.
