Innovations 8 logoInnovations in Textiles 8

Exhibit Dates: September 20 to November 7, 2009
Artwork Submission Dates: July 1, 2009
 

When a simple strand of thread is knotted, stitched or woven into art, you know that the touch of an artist's hand has transformed the simple to the sublime. Innovation in Textiles 8, coordinated by the Craft Alliance in St. Louis, MO and presented biennially, investigates contemporary fiber art. This fall, more than 20 local galleries, non-profit and private arts organizations will collaborate to showcase textile arts, guest lecturers, fiber centered workshops and programs, free of charge. This bi-annual, collaborative exhibition will focusing on a wide range of materials and techniques; soft yarns woven into tapestries, shaped and dyed shibori wearables, paper stitched with horse hair, fusions of glass and fiber and quilts whose colors rival the palettes of the Old Masters. The exhibits, lectures and workshops will demonstrate how a single strand of thread is transformed, through process, manipulation and its materiality, to a complex and sublime work of art.
