Extreme Fibers: Textile Icons and the New Edge examines the state of fibers and textiles in the fine art world today. The exhibition has been developed by the Muskegon Museum of Art in coordination with Guest Curator Geary Jones of Grand Rapids, Michigan. The artworks on display reveal the diversity of the fine art textile and fiber movement, and its transformation into a multi-media and discipline-spanning phenomenon. Participating artists come from around the world, including an invited slate of 27 artists that are visionaries in the fieldViewers will find tapestries, quilts, weavings, sculpture, basketry, and a host of other forms on display, from functional works to fully abstracted shapes. One artist from the juried portion of the show will be selected by Ferne Jacobs and Namita Gupta Wiggers for the California Fibers Beyond the Boundaries Award. This award is sponsored by California Fibers and is given annually to a fiber artist for artistic innovation in subject matter, materials and/or technique in a national or international fiber exhibition. The winner will be announced at a later date. My work Kaboom 2 is on display and I’m really pleased beeing a part of it.
