Janice Lessman-Moss, who is professor of textile arts at Kent State University, curated Heights Arts’ upcoming exhibit, Point-Line-Pattern-Plane. It features the work of eight area artists who work with fiber in a range of different ways.
Says the exhibition press release, “Although building on a foundation of traditional techniques, all the artists use the language of textiles to create objects of beauty and meaning, reflecting the sensibilities of our time. Processes such as weaving, stitching and dyeing are used to develop form and surface, while repetition, accumulation, color and pattern are mined for content and character.”
Some of the artists are well-known in the area, such as Hildur Asgeirsdottir Jonsson, who has exhibited her giant panels, inspired by the landscape of her native Iceland, internationally, and Jessica Pinsky, who founded and runs Praxis Fiber Arts in the Waterloo Arts District, giving a hand to other artists while creating her own layered, evanescent weavings. Others may be less known but their work is sure to be a revelation.
The show also features work by Laurie Addis, Elena Brebenel, Si-Yun Chang, Rebecca Cross, Andrea Myers and Katlin Shae. It opens with a reception Fri 1/17 @ 6-9pm, with refreshments and a cash bar. The show runs through Sun 3/1.
