Hand Wash Only

11 11 people viewed this event.

Hand Wash Only explores the handmade, homespun, self-fashioned, and co-created practice of contemporary regional fiber artists. Skills and crafts that have been passed down through chosen and actual family lineages make way for a new generation of fiber artists with a common thread: if you can sew it, weave it, felt it, bind it, knit it, quilt it, or more, it’s art. Often most associated with quilts and other functional objects, fiber art is no longer limited by use, and the exhibited works reflect a diverse range of techniques, interests, and materials, reflecting interdisciplinary approaches to sculpture, painting, ceramics, and more. The work on view is influenced by personal histories and family and each artist has chosen additional work from their fiber lineage to display. Hand Wash Only is a celebration of contemporary, interdisciplinary fiber art as well as its supporting traditions.
