BELLEVUE, WA.- 2012 marks the unveiling of the second edition of BAM's much-anticipated biennial. With a focus on fiber, one of the most thriving and vibrant media in contemporary art, BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet continues the Museum's commitment to celebrating both tradition and innovation in art, craft and design in the Northwest. The exhibition will be on view at Bellevue Arts Museum from October 25, 2012 to February 24, 2013.

Selected from close to 300 applications, the 44 artists chosen to participate in BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet represent both established and emerging artists, either living or working in the Northwest (Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Montana, Oregon and Washington).

Participating artists include:
Polly Adams Sutton (WA), Howard and Lorraine Barlow (WA), Dina Barzel (WA), Lou Cabeen (WA), Vanessa Calvert (OR), Michael Cepress (WA), Christine Chaney (WA), David Chatt (WA), Joanne Circle (BC), Celeste Cooning (WA), Scott Fife (WA), Rob Folendorf (WA), April Marie Hale (MT), Jo Hamilton (OR), Luke Haynes (WA), Carolyn Hopkins (WA), Jan Hopkins (WA), Rock Hushka (WA), Jiseon Lee Isbara (OR), Ann Johnston (OR), Christine Joy (MT), Patti King (WA), Sheila Klein (WA), Paul Komada (WA), Barbara Lee Smith (WA), Margie Livingston (WA), Allison Manch (WA), Amanda Manitach (WA), Sherry Markovitz (WA), Heather McGilvray (WA), Dorothy McGuinness (WA), Rachel Meginnes (WA), Robert Mertens (OR), Moxie (WA), Tiffany Pruitt (WA), Patricia Resseguie (WA), Lesley Richmond (BC), Maggy Rozycki Hiltner (MT), Scott Schuldt (WA), Maria Shell (AK), Shelley Socolofsky (OR), Nate Steigenga (WA), Claire Taylor (WA) and Tamara Wilson (AK).

The majority of the works are specifically created for the exhibition. They range from traditional to new expressions of fiber art, where concepts, media and ideas merge. Michael Cepress's deconstructed fashion, Amanda Manitach's video of the embroidery of a lamb tongue, Scott Fife's low-tech cardboard pieces, Dina Barzel's monumental yet airy sculpture in raw silk, Sherry Markovitz's iconic beaded sculptures and Jiseon Lee Isbara's Korean bojagi-inspired forms are but a few of the diverse works to be seen in BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet. Jointly, they offer a glimpse into how artists continue to transform and re-invent fiber's already rich tradition in the Northwest.
