SDA-WA Member Activities March

SDA Members at the Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum

“Photographs and Memories Invitational”
Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum
Now through March 25

SDA members Christina Fairley Erickson, Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry and Cheri Kopp  have quilts in the “Photographs and Memories Invitational” show at the Quilt and Fiber Arts Museum in LaConner through March 25, featuring works from 21 artists “who use everything from appliqué, piecing, photo transfer, painting, thread painting, weaving and other techniques. Whether using cast-off clothing, adding text to their work, or interpreting the work of loved ones, each artist strives to create a unique interpretation of a photo or memory.” The following are featured pieces, with artists’ descriptions:

 

Women's Work - Cheri Kopp600

Cheri Kopp, Women’s Work, quilt

A description of the piece “Women’s Work,” from the artist: “At the intersection of Cheri’s art from cast-off materials and her quilting past, this quilt was inspired by her disintegrating ironing-board cover. It honors many traditional roles of women, celebrating housework and handcrafts. Tiny hand-made forms fill out the doll clothes, including the belly of the pedal pushers depicting pregnancy, the only true woman’s work.”

 

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cheri Kopp, Celebrate Me Home, 2006, quilt

A description of the piece “Celebrate Me Home,” from the artist: “Reflecting on her grandfather-in-law’s death and the idea of his “going home,” Cheri designed four blocks, using signatures on fabric, one for each home in her husband’s family. All of the family’s homes featured in this 2006 quilt are now in the hands of new owners. That’s grandfather Matthew in the window; Cheri’s home flies the Quilter’s Anonymous flag.”

 

Centennial 1 - Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry600

Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry, Centennial #1, quilt

A description of the piece “Centennial #1,” from the artist: “Caryl’s father, Cecil Joseph Bryer, celebrated his 100th birthday on July 24, 2001. The hundred guests, who celebrated with him, included his three children, nine grandchildren and 15 great grandchildren. The photos surrounding trace his life from infancy in 1901 to his 100th birthday. Caryl’s father passed away in January of 2005, at the age of 103½.”

 

Watch Master - Caryl Bryer Fallert-Gentry600

A description of the piece “Watch Master,” from the artist: “For most of his adult life, Caryl’s father worked for the Elgin Watch Company in Elgin Illinois, and ran his own watch repair business on the side. She grew up watching him work with the tens of thousands of sparkling, nearly microscopic watch parts. The cabinet next to his workbench became an end table in her home, the drawers so fascinating, she couldn’t bear to clear them out. Caryl photographed the cabinet, and each of the twelve drawers, then took macro-lens close-ups of the tins and boxes full of tiny parts to make this quilt.”

A felt studio in Hungary

Felt Tours in Hungary with Flóra Carlile-Kovács

Discover the country of Hungary, and take workshops from the world-class felt masters it offers with SDA-WA member Flóra Carlile-Kovács.

East-Hungary Felt Tour, April 19–30, 2018
West-Hungary Felt Tour, May 3–14, 2018

– Five days felting workshops
– Hungarian foods
– Sightseeing
– Thermal baths
– Craft markets

A special message from Flóra:
————–
In one of my workshops in the Pacific Northwest, my students came up with the idea that I should organize a Felt Tour to Hungary, as I am a felt artist and instructor, and a native of the country. In this tour, they could learn from the amazing Hungarian felt masters, and also travel in the country with like-minded people, try our delicious foods, visit Turkish baths, historic sites, antique- and contemporary-craft markets and wonderful places no guide books even mention. This dream soon became true; I led my first Felt Tour to Hungary in 2016. It was so well received, that I offered two Felt Tours in the spring of 2017, with different focuses on the workshops and in different parts of the country.

In the East-Hungary Tour, we visited small towns of the eastern part of Hungary, and took three one-day and one two-day workshops from world-class felt masters. These were project-oriented classes that built on one another, and featured various felting techniques, both in 2D and 3D designs. Participants made small and large objects; these included a bottle holder with nomadic design instructed by Mihály Vetró, 3D home decor instructed by Márti Csille, felted jewelry instructed by Judit Tóth-Pócs and a prefelt pillow cover instructed by Gabriella Kovács. It speaks for the instructors, that both beginner feltmakers were able to succeed in the classes and advanced students could still learn a lot!

In the West-Hungary Tour, we visited some wonderful historic sites of the west side of Hungary, took one two-day workshop and one three-day workshop from internationally recognized felt masters. Both the felted bag with woven inlay instructed by Vanda Róbert and the sculptural hat instructed by Judit Tóth-Pócs workshops were advanced felting projects, but even those who decided to take their first felt workshops just prior the tour (to get the most out of it), succeeded!

These tours have become much more than just guided tours for me. It has become my mission to introduce outstanding Hungarian artists, craftsmen, amazing people and places to my guests, and to give a personal insight of my home country in just twelve days.

To get the itineraries and more info about the 2018 Felt Tours, or register, please email me: carlile.kovacs@gmail.com.

Hope to see you on one of the tours!

North Peninsula Chapter Fiber Revolution Show

Port Angeles Fine Arts Center
September 16–November 15

Fiber Revolution is the next exhibition scheduled at the Port Angeles Fine Arts Center. The art was created by members of the WA State Surface Design Association—North Peninsula Chapter, which encompasses Jefferson, Clallam and Kitsap counties.

Thirty-nine pieces from 26 artists are displayed, all differing in expression. The only commonality is the use of fiber. Fiber can be natural or synthetic, or can be any substance that acts like or resembles a fiber. For example, an installation woven with copper and stainless steel threads is displayed comfortably next to a garment made from wool and dyed with local botanicals.

The Revolution is taking a time-honored process and changing it up, moving it along and breaking some rules. The resulting art is created outside the bounds of tradition. All work was completed in the last 18 months; most in the last three.

The show opened September 16 and runs through November 15. Exhibiting artists will make presentations throughout the run of the exhibit.

Penn Cove Pottery, Coupeville
Now through September 4

Textile wall hangings by members of the Fiber Optix art group are in “Against the Wall” at Penn Cove Pottery.

Fiber Optix is a group of nationally and internationally recognized Pacific Northwest artists who make abstract art quilts. The work is built upon the foundation of traditional, utilitarian quilt making, but these contemporary artists use the tools of that tradition in order to achieve the same goals as all artists: self expression and the creation of meaningful works of art. The striking, colorful pieces in “Against the Wall” vary in size, but all are meant to be hung on the wall.

Local Whidbey Island artists included in the exhibit: SDA member Liz Axford, plus Marcia Derse and Janet Steadman. SDA members in Fiber Optix who have work in the show are Louise Harris, Janet Kurjan, Melisse Laing and Barb Nepom. Other Fiber Optix members in the show are Sandy Altenberg, Cher Cartwright, Nancy Cordry and Ellin Larimer.

Artistry in Fiber, Vol 2: Sculpture by Anne Lee and E. Ashley Rooney

SDA members Lanny Bergner, Barbara DePirro, Cameron Anne Mason, Dorothy McGuinness and Carol Milne are among the artists published in Artistry in Fiber, Vol 2: Sculpture, available July 2017.

Nearly 500 photos of artwork with personal insights from 76 of today’s most noteworthy artists show the tremendously broad range of possibilities that working in three dimensions can offer. In conjunction with the other two books in this acclaimed series, it invites readers to re-examine fiber art through a multifaceted contemporary lens. Both established artists and emerging artists whose work is attracting notice are gathered here. Carol Milne’s knitted glass and Peter Gentenaar’s technique of vacuum forming and air-drying paper fibers are but a few examples of artists using new materials with traditional methods.
