WESTERLY, R.I.- The third biannual FACE (Fiber Artists on the Cutting Edge) exhibit will be at the Westerly Public Library from April 1 - April 30, 2004. Exciting new work by the group of ten fiber artists will fill the library’s gallery. An Opening Reception will be held Wednesday, April 7th from 5:00 - 8:00 pm.
FACE artwork encompasses a large range of styles, from the highly realistic imagery of Barbara Barrick McKie’s flowers transferred to fabric from the artist’s own photographs to the surrealistic landscapes of Herta Payson’s dream images. Martha Sielman’s "Beetles on CD" includes actual CD-Rom discs along with plastic beetles, while Judy Cuddihee’s pieces explore human sexuality. Roz Spier’s felted art-to-wear coats are both wearable and fine art: her most topical piece is a coat covered with books, which was inspired by her love of libraries. Participating artists include: Ann Cofone, Barbara Barrick McKie, E. Gaynell Meij, Herta Payson, Joanne Pinckney, Judy Cuddihee, Margaret Townsend, Roz Spier, Solveig Ronnqvist, and Martha Sielman.
FACE (Fiber Artists on the Cutting Edge) Exhibit - April 1 - April 30, 2004, Westerly Public Library, Broad Street, Westerly, RI 02891. (401) 596-2877.
