Current Exhibit

Unraveled: The Threads that Connect

October 16 - December 4

Reception: Sunday, October 17th at 2:30 PM

“Unraveled: The threads that connect!” will be on display in the Winnsboro Center for the Arts gallery from October 16 to December 4, and the reception honoring the four featured artists will be at WCA on October 17, 2:30 pm to 4:30 pm.
 
Featured artists Kristie Smith, Valery Guignon, Brenda Buck and Phyllis Neal present visually striking original pieces which emphasize the artistic power behind a commonly overlooked art such as fiber arts. This exhibit presents figurative and abstract works which reflect our lived experiences through the lens of women weaving, quilting, knotting, sewing, spinning, knitting, and dyeing.
 
Among the pieces in the exhibit, there is Kristie’s “Secret Garden,” a quilted cape stitched with over 40 different threads, which won first place for Innovation and Fashion at the 2011 International Textile and Apparel Association and received Honorable Mention at the Festival of Quilts in Birmingham, England. Smith is the creative director of Stitchin’ Heaven, the largest quilting shop in Texas, and she will also be displaying some of her best quilts in the exhibit.
 
Valery is known for her mixed media collages, hand-dyed silks, and bringing various fiber arts together to create fine art pieces. Her travels have certainly influenced her work as seen in the types of fabrics and subject matter she chooses.
 
Brenda and Phyllis work together to spin their own yarn for weaving, and their skeins of yarn will be in the exhibit as well. Brenda’s process of creating specialty garments can be seen on a vision board, taking the viewer through the planning process artists make when they work with fibers. Phyllis takes natural animal fibers, spins them into yarn, and uses the yarn to crochet, knit, and weave. Phyllis will have impressive baskets, tapestries, and woven objects on display.
 
We hope to see you on Sunday, October 17 at 2:30 pm to celebrate the fiber arts as fine art at Winnsboro Center for the Arts!
