For those of you who haven’t seen the BAM Biennial:High Fiber Diet at the Bellevue Arts Museum, or would like to see it again, I’m inviting CQA and SDA members to visit while I have my gallery duty as a BAM docent on Saturday, Jan. 19 from 2-4.

There are two other wonderful exhibits on view as well, a Japanese bamboo exhibit and an exhibit of Nikki McClure’s papercut work. Click HERE to learn more. I will provide a tour of the bamboo and fiber exhibits starting at 2 pm and then you can spend additional time on your own.

If there are at least 10 participants (who are not members of BAM), there will be a group rate of $6. Otherwise, admission is $10. If you would like to attend, please let me know at jkurjan2@comcast.net.

41 Harker Students Exhibit at the Schack Art Center in January

Ever wonder what kind of art comes as a result of taking classes at the Gail Harker Center for Creative Arts in La Conner?

Susan Lenarz_LRYou can see for yourself Jan. 10 through Feb. 16, 2013 at the Schack Art Center in Everett when 41 Harker students present Complex Threads.

Visitors will be astonished at the diversity of work created, which includes intricate embroidered vessels, large 3-dimensional wall hangings, soft sculptures, complex designs, and other contemporary fiber art and multimedia pieces.

“The items on exhibit exemplify the skills in design, media, and technique that are the hallmark of our courses,” said Gail Harker, Center founder.  “I’m really pleased that that the work of these artists will have a platform for wider appreciation.”

Exhibitors include students from Portland, OR, Seattle, and several cities in California and British Columbia, among others. To download a PDF of the full list of artists and view small thumbnails of the work, click HERE.

The Harker Center was recently featured in Fiber Art Now.  You can find a PDF of the article by clicking HERE.
