"The Fiber Revolution: Quilts As Art"
2003-09-03 until 2003-10-31
Ellen Traut Collection Gallery
Hartford, CT, USA United States of America

The Fiber Revolution: Quilts As Art" will be at the Ellen Traut Collection (ETC) gallery from September 3 - October 31, 2003. "Fiber Revolution" contains works by twenty artists from the Connecticut, New Jersey, and Delaware region of the Studio Art Quilt Association. The works will be displayed at ETC - 635 Farmington Avenue in Hartford's West End.

Art quilts are highly collectible artwork. Judy Weinstein of the Greater Hartford Arts Council said, "I was just bowled over by the talents of the artists ... absolutely gorgeous!" Allison Hunnicutt, co-manager of the Chen Gallery at Central Connecticut State University, said, "The work is so beautiful. I cannot believe how beautiful it is!" These art quilts are by no means meant to lay folded at the foot of a bed, but rather hung on the wall like oil or watercolor paintings. These artists use fiber as their medium: dyeing it, painting it, cutting it, tearing it, stamping it, fusing it and embellishing it. The final step, the quilting of the surface, brings a dimensional depth to the artwork that mere paint cannot.

Participating artists include: Martha Sielman, Virginia Abrams, Deborah Barr, Rachel Cochran, Judy Cuddihee, Joan Dreyer, Rayna Gillman, Jutta Halpin, Gloria Hansen, Celeste Kelly, Kevan Rupp Lunney, Barbara Barrick McKie, E. Gaynell Meij, Ed Johnetta Miller, Jo Neimann, Judith Reilly, Joanie San Chirico, Carol Sara Schepps, Deborah Tiryung Sidwell, and Carolyn Lee Vehslage.
