Illuminations in Fiber: Inspired by The Saint John’s Bible – an Exhibit of Fiber Art
October 1 @ 9:00 amIncluded with Museum Admission
Illuminations in Fiber: Inspired by The Saint John’s Bible is an exhibit of fiber art by members of Designing Quilters, a local fiber design group. These artists challenged themselves to create new pieces inspired by the themes and images of The Saint John’s Bible. How do those inspirations present themselves in this exhibit? Many pieces show text, Biblical and not, applied to fabric in various ways – stitched, stamped, stenciled, embroidered. Construction is varied — piecing, applique, and collage. Fabric has been manipulated by dyeing, painting, rusting and quilting. A variety of fabrics are combined with threads, ribbons and other embellishments. Come see the inspirations – and be inspired. Designing Quilters was organized in 1984 to provide support and encouragement to its members to pursue original design in fiber art. Most members at that time came from a background of traditional quiltmaking. The group continues to meet monthly. Most current members are from the Moorhead-Fargo area and surrounding communities. As a group, Designing Quilters has exhibited in over a dozen galleries in the F-M area and the region.
