"Voices" fiber art exhibit opens this Friday July 20!

Remnants Collage 16
Lynn Krawczyk

I am incredibly thrilled to be part of a fiber art invitational called Voices. The exhibit is organized by Anne Hiemstra and it showcases nine fiber artists. The work each artist is exhibiting is a representation of their artistic voices.

I've got four large Remnant Collages on exhibit. The one above, RC 15, and two new ones (lacking photos at the moment but will get those up soon).

From the Voices website:

For the visual artist, “voice” is a metaphor for the distinct and recognizable manner in which we communicate with the viewer.  The vocal artist uses pitch, rhythm, tempo, dynamics, phrasing, and (usually) words to convey mood, emotion, and meaning; the visual artist uses line, color, shape, texture, value, and (sometimes) words to do the same.

Voice is more than style.

It includes both technique and content. It is rooted in our own personal space – our  experiences, understanding, and interpretations of life, and our choices of medium and techniques.  Finding one’s voice is not often easy, quick, or simple, but once found, it will tell truth to the viewer.

By presenting a body of work from each of several artists, “Voices” gives viewers the opportunity to “listen” to the work as a whole & explore how the artist’s voice informs each piece within the group.

The exhibit includes work from Jill Ault, Kathie Briggs, Barbara Bushey, Anne Hiemstra, Sue Holdaway Heys, Lynn Krawczyk, Carol Myers, Joan Potter Thomas and Desiree Vaughn.
The show is being held from July 20 - August 24 at the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center.
