Circles and Cycles
Region: Indiana, Michigan, Ohio members
Consider the circle. It is universal, basic, a line touching itself or representing a sphere. It encloses, simultaneously including and excluding. It suggests celestial bodies that spin and orbit, and cycles in nature. Cycles, like night and day, seasons, water evaporating from the earth and returning as rain, plants and animals growing from seed to adult, then creating offspring which repeat the process.
In this exhibition, members of Studio Art Quilt Associates celebrate the idea of circles and cycles with their artwork. Artists from Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan use their personal vocabularies of image, style, and technique to create works made from layers of fabric, enriched with surface design or embellishment, and held together with thread. The art combines visual excitement, texture, and meaning.
