Simply RED Fiber Art Show
In terms of the title of the show “Simply Red”. The backstory is High Fiber Diet decided last fall to mount a show about every year based on a different color. Red was chosen as the first color, thus it is our first show in the series. Members then voted on suggested titles, and Simply Red was selected. The decision to use a color rather than a theme is intended to give artists a range of design options/subject matter while tying the show together around a color.
Simply Red, the first of a multi-series show incorporates a range of design options, while tying the subject-matter to a cohesive color scheme.
The artwork accepted in this exhibition represents a diverse group of creative thinkers; with each artist dedicating many hours of work to each piece.
The design and composition are of particular interest to the three jurors, Una Kim, Ikie Nolan Kressel and Trisha Hassler, as well as the viewers. The selected pieces will create lively discussions between artist and viewer based on various artistic backgrounds.
“Ultimately we chose pieces that maintained their presence and spoke with a decisive voice,” stated the Jurying Committee. “We are happy with the diversity of design, technique and point-of-view this group of textiles includes, and are confident this will result in a strong, cohesive show.”
