Gunn to host exhibition on materials, threads & dyes

The Stairwell Gallery is delighted to announce the opening of a new show presenting the work of seven members of the CT Fiber Art Collective, CTFAC. The exhibit will be up from January 12 through March 16 and may be viewed during normal library hours. An opening reception will be held January 12 from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m.

Being fiber art, this exhibit is a departure from the usual at the Gunn Memorial Library and yet there is a common thread! Viewing the work of these seven women you will be amazed at the "painterly" results of fiber art. Exhibited in these colorful wall hangings is a wide range of materials, threads, and dyes.

Rosalind Spann, the collective’s coordinator for this show, spent many years in costume design. This field, combined with her interest in traditional quilting, led her to fiber art. Her expressive fiber creation of landscapes as well as her figurative work seen in "Club Notes," a colorful jazz club themed wall hanging show her years of experience.

Diane Cadrain, a lawyer, journalist and fiber artist, describes her own work as, "ever-evolving, and has been ever since the day I first picked up a needle at age 7." Her wall hangings evoke all the stages and emotions of the seasons.

Carol R. Eaton was taught to sew by her mother and learned how to construct a garment. She discovered quilting in 1990 and says, "My current passion is incorporating unusual processes such as ice dying, confetti dying and de-colorant techniques to create one of a kind fabric."

Antonia Torres, who worked as a seamstress and wardrobe designer, was also taught to sew, knit and crochet by her mother and grandmother. After attending a quilt show she became fascinated by art quilts. "Autumn Birch" is nearly photographic and "With All My Heart" one expects the image to begin pulsing.

Karen Loprete expresses herself with elaborate stitchery utilizing her grandmother’s lace in some of her work.

Mary Lachman is a mixed media artist, quilter and a collector of vintage textiles. Her quilts are a visual feast.

Carol Vinick’s "Jellyfish in July at the CT Shore" is positively a watercolor of threads.
