Opening Reception Tomorrow Night: “TEXTile” at Guilford Library

Connecticut fiber artist collaborative Sisters in Cloth Presents:

TEXTileA special exhibition of Fiber Art at the Guilford Free Library

Opening Reception Thursday, December 9th 2010 from 5 – 8 PM(image: detail by Diane Wright)

The Sisters in Cloth’s latest exhibit is on display now through December 30, 2010.

TEXTile is the result of a group challenge posed to all members and former members: create an art quilt inspired by the word "WORD".  Meant to be translated very broadly, the basic requirement was that a word or text had to be contained somewhere within the piece.

Ten current members and two past members have contributed work: Barb Adams, Debbie Bento, Vivika DeNegre, Yvette Howard, Evelyn Judson, Gail Kotowski, Carol Ludington, Ruth Anne Olson, Marie Shepherd, Martha Wolfe, Diane Wright and Linda Zimmerman.

Sisters in Cloth are being joined in celebration by two photographers, Mark Janke and Mary Ann Flick, whose exhibition will be showcased in the outer galleries.
