“Close to the Cloth” A Textile Exhibit
A Textile Exhibit
The T. W. Wood Gallery at 46 Barre St in Montpelier, Vermont at the Center for Arts and Learning is pleased to announce the opening of “Close to the Cloth”, a textile exhibit featuring the work of Barbara Bendix, Karen Henderson, Stephanie Krauss, Skye Livingston, Kate Ruddle and Neysa Russo. The Gallery has assembled a varied group of Vermont fiber artists that showcase a range of techniques and sensibilities toward textiles. The work ranges from pieces seated firmly in traditional craft to conceptual work that uses fiber as a vehicle, and work that straddles the divide. “Close to the Cloth” will be on view in the Group Exhibitions Hall.
Reception There will be an opening reception on Thursday March 7th from 5:00-7:00pm. The reception is an opportunity to meet many of the artists and enjoy refreshments and purchase local art at affordable prices. Also on exhibit are works from the Gallery’s permanent collection. The Gallery is located at 46 Barre Street at the Center for Arts and Learning in Montpelier, VT.
Demo Day – Saturday - March 23rd – 1-3pm. Artists will talk about their work and share textile techniques from their work. Skye Livingston will give a demonstration on natural dyeing. Kate Ruddle will give a demo on fabric manipulation to include such techniques as creating three-dimensional forms with pleating and flounces. This is an eclectic group of textile artists, so the techniques will cover an interesting array of techniques.
We invite you to visit the gallery and enjoy the work of these diverse textile artists! Gallery hours are Tuesday-Saturday 12:00-4:00 pm and by appointment. All shows are free and open to the public.
