Susan Else: Without a Net

is at San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles in San Jose, California, through  April 15, 2018

As a fabric sculptor, Santa Cruz-based artist Susan Else pushes the boundaries of the studio art quilt movement by integrating sound, light and motors with colorful, stitched figures. In her solo exhibition Without a Net, Else explores the theatrical awe and dark underbelly of the circus.

Stitched Together
is at Anderson Arts Center in Kenosha, Wisconsin, through March 18, 2018

Stitched Together is an exhibit of contemporary fiber art work by Illinois and Wisconsin regional members of SAQA. The length of the Midwest SAQA ILWI region is over 800 miles, from Northern Wisconsin to Southern Illinois. That area spans many miles of lakes, forests, farmlands, cities, towns, open sky and skyline. What inspires us? What makes us different? Similar? Our common passion for fiber art keeps us Stitched Together. The exhibit consists of 30 art quilts by 30 artists and was juried by Illinois fiber artist Sharon L. Wright. The show features contemporary art quilts with wide variations in artistic interpretation, style, and technique. Work by juror Sharon Wright and Co-curators Pat Kroth and Cynthia Wenslow will also be included.
