“From Fine Art to Fiber: Reinterpreting the Masters” at the Whistler

MPhillips_PicassoMost of the time, artists are loathe to admit their work is based on or inspired by another artist.  But in this case, it is not only tolerated but encouraged!

Themel_OdeToKissDetailThe Whistler House Museum of Art in Lowell, MA presents “From Fine Art to Fiber: Reinterpreting the Masters”, an exhibition of art quilts inspired by famous works of art including paintings, murals, and sculpture — from Michelangelo to Warhol and beyond. 

Some of the artwork to be included in the Fine Art to Fiber Exhibition: Margaret Phillips’ “Picasso’s Girl in the Mirror” (upper left), Norma Schlager’s “Poppies” (lower left) and Kate Themel’s “Ode to a Kiss”, inspired by Gustav Klimt (detail, upper right).  Diane Wright will have two pieces in the show, “After Matisse” and “Tide Pooling”, (detail, lower right) inspired by John James Audubon.
