The regional juried exhibition HANDCRAFTED: Fiber Art & Turned Wood presents the work of contemporary artists and fine craft artisans working in fiber art and turned wood. The exhibit features works of fiber art that employ traditional and experimental materials that are woven or stitched using textile techniques which may include weaving, quilting, embroidery, beading, felting, crochet, knitting, lacework, hooking, sewing, spinning, tapestry, and mixed media along with current innovations in this evolving medium.
Fiber Art entries were judged by Camille Anne Brewer, Curator of Contemporary Art at the George Washington University Textile Museum in Washington, DC. HANDCRAFTED also includes a variety of functional, sculptural, and creative turned wood pieces created using the lathe and hand-held tools, often combining new techniques and materials to demonstrate the range of forms which can be achieved on a rotating axis. Turned Wood entries were juried by Fleur Bresler, a collector of turned wood who is a Commissioner for the Smithsonian Museum of American Art.
