CONTEXT
Contemporary textile Artists of Northern California, a Bay Area guild of fiber artists, will be on exhibit in the East Wing Humanities Gallery. These innovative works rely partly on traditional surface design techniques like screen printing, dyeing, shibori, machine embroidery, hand painting and quilting. They also incorporate re-weaving fabric, collage, use of found objects, beading, bleaching, raw-edged fabric, and photo transferring, frequently mixing these media in surprising ways.

Silk painter Joy-Lily frames her naturalistic paintings of flora and fauna with shibori-dyed silk which has bleached images of falling leaves. Collage of  woven silk strips overlays her images to create shimmering highlights. These works are finished with quilt stitching.

Shibori dyer DJ Hamouris creates mandala-like wall hangings by pleating silk, wrapping it on poles and hand applying colors. "When I unwrap it," she says "the result is sometimes even better than what I had planned. Shibori is a magical fiber art technique, full of delightful surprises."

fiber/DIMENSIONS
fiber/DIMENSIONS is a group of Bay Area  artists with a three-dimensional focus concentrating on new and emerging concepts of sculpture, installation, and fiber art.  Members meet monthly to critique, exchange techniques, learn of opportunities relating to areas of group interest, support art ambitions of fellow members, and plan group exhibitions.  We support the needs of members who are beginning artists and those who have already emerged.

We are alumni from workshops or classes of Carole Beadle and support her philosophy of positive encouragement and co-operative decision making.
