Lopez Artist Guild presents a new exhibit, “Material Matters”, featuring textile artists Sheila Metcalf and Barbara Nepom. Show runs through July 22.
Following themes of repair and reuse, Sheila has created 7 indigo-dyed shibori coats using raw silk draperies. Also included are sakiori (rag weave) vests and hand-woven coats of hand-dyed yarns.
Barbara will display some of her newer colorful, abstract art quilts. She has recently been incorporating dense stitching to enhance the composition and textural qualities of the work.
