A two-in-one colorful fiber art exhibit will arrive in the Chilliwack Cultural Center Art Gallery later this month.
Members of the Fiber Art Network (FAN) present “Chromatopia” and “For the Birds” at the O’Connor Group Art Gallery from September 22 to October 9.
FAN is a self-defined artists’ cooperative based in Western Canada.
‘Chromatopia’ is an exhibition inspired by the monochrome works of Picasso in his blue period. Each artist was challenged to explore their own theme through the creation of two monochrome textile works of art using two hues of assigned colors.
The exhibition visually explores the spectrum of colors. Each set of two pieces (which will be hung in columns of two), are textile / fiber pieces that reflect a unique theme of the individual artist represented through two distinct monochromatic color schemes.
“For the Birds” will be presented alongside “Chromatopia”. Each artist has interpreted the theme in their own way, and the work depicts an aspect of a bird’s life, interests and interactions with the world in which it lives, or is inspired by an idiom or a adage related to birds.
FAN members include emerging fiber artists, teachers, authors, judges and award-winning textile artists. Many have shown their work nationally and internationally and some have gained national and international recognition for their work.
“Chromatopia” and “For the Birds” by members of the Fiber Art Network are on display in the Art Gallery of the Chilliwack Cultural Center from September 22 to October 9. when there is a concert / show in the center. There will be a closing reception on October 9 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. Free entry.
