The Art of Contemporary Fibre
September 6-30, 2018
Circle Craft Cooperative is pleased to present “The Art of Contemporary Fibre” in their Gallery on Granville Island, curated by textile artist Kaija Rautiainen.
This exhibition features works of four internationally-known British Columbian fibre artists:
Lesley Richmond (Mixed Process Fibre); Kaarina Talvila (Silk Fabric); Yvonne Wakabayashi (Textile Sculpture); and, Angelika Werth (Deconstructed/Reconstructed Wearable Textiles).
Inspired by their surroundings, the artists create works that are both visually pleasing and thought provoking. Using a variety of textile techniques and employing traditional and
innovative materials, their work enriches the dialogue of contemporary fibre.
