Hartford Public Library
Description: Presenting diversity of media, styles, and culture within the art world
Hosting two artists in the stunning ArtWalk exhibit space: FIBER ALCHEMY: TWO VIEWPOINTS Sandra Bender Fromson and Ellen Schiffman Sandra Bender Fromson is a fiber artist whose work incorporates quilting, embroidery, beading, dyeing and painting, weaving, and felting, and she takes her inspiration for materials, colors, and textures, from nature. Her textile pieces are presented in the context of their creation; her floor loom, shuttles and garment patterns will be part of the display. Ellen Schiffman, a fiber artist working sculpturally, spent a year filling a shadow box per week with explorations of methods and materials. The resulting 52-box visual diary, presented as a cohesive whole and employing both traditional and experimental techniques, questions the boundaries of what fiber art can be.
