The St. Louis Chapter of the Women's Caucus for art is gearing up for a regional 'fiber' art exhibition.
For the first time, the WCA chapter will be participating in Innovations in Textiles 8. IT8 is a biennial collaborative event in St. Louis that investigates the state of contemporary fiber/textile arts. Nineteen nonprofit and private arts organizations join forces to present exhibitions related to fiber art created by national and international artists. Activities include workshops, lectures, gallery tours, and community programs.
As part of IT8, WCA-STL presents Made by Hand, a regional exhibition juried by fiber artist Jo Stealey.
Stealey is an art professor and head of the fiber department at the University of Missouri - Columbia. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally; and is in several permanent collections. Stealey explores aspects of drawing, writing, sculpting, and assembling, all through her expansive use of handmade paper. She states, "I am searching for a visceral response that touches a place within us where no words exist to describe our emotion." Naturally occurring shapes and structures inspire Stealey's works.
The exhibition will be held at Crossroads Art Studios and Gallery 501 N. Kingshighway, St. Charles MO 63301. The exhibition will be on display Sept 8 - October 8, 2009 with a reception: Friday Sept 11, 7-9pm. It will also be part of the IT8 bus tour: Saturday, October 3. WCA will sponsor a Felted Teka workshop with Nino Hecht: Sunday, October 4, 1-4pm.
