Friday September 9 was a great day. Re-visioning Fiber, curated by Regina Benson, opened in three galleries at the Lakewood CO Cultural Center. The entry of the exhibition contained all three artists' work.
All of the artists were there for the opening and for artists' talks on Saturday morning. This next photo is of Nancy Koenigsberg in front of her Golden Dawn. She creates complex structures of coated wire. This piece also has some beading at the wire junctures. It glistened in the lights.
The next photo is of Tempest. She does wonderful abstracts of nature that convey the feelings very well from light and airy to dense and complex.
These next photos are of Jason Pollen's work. Much of his work is based on small collages of fabrics. The tall skinny pieces are his Sentinels that mimic the only way he could stand following difficult back surgery.
These banners by Regina Benson hung in the entry way and flowed with air currents. Regina starts with white cloth and adds and subtracts color until she gets the effect she wants. Her work is very sculptural, often coming off the wall.
Several intrigued viewers saw a man climbing into one of my pieces. I love to learn what others find in my artwork.
A lot of my work was on the open balcony on the second floor outside the room where we did the artist talks.
This last photo is of the artists, the ladies left to right are Nancy G Cook, Nancy Koenigsberg, and Regina Benson with Jason Pollen . We are standing in front of my Teasel pieces.
Hope you have enjoyed this coverage. And hope you will be able to see it. Regina has curated a most interesting and thought provoking fiber exhibition. If you are anywhere near this venue, you will not be disappointed.
