With Every Fiber
Pelham Art Center
Feb. 6, 2023 - Apr. 3, 2021
Pelham Art Center is pleased to announce the opening of With Every Fiber (February 6-April 3, 2021). Brooklyn-based curator Anki King presents the work of artists Joy Curtis, Ruby Chisti, Victoria Udondian, Jessica Lagunas, Liz Whitney Quisgard, Mary Ann Lomonaco, and Mary Tooley Parker who all use fiber to create deeply personal works of art.
The artists selected by curator Anki King for this exhibition all manipulate fiber to communicate emotion and meaning beyond the literal context of the materials. Clothing becomes mountains, embroidery is made rugged and dramatic and color patterns move across large walls. For them, the lifeline is the creative process itself. The need to express and create is primal and fiber is one of the original expressive materials.
