Curated by Marcia Young, Editor in Chief of “Fiber Art Now” Magazine

UNBOUND:  It’s unconventional, unexpected, and undeniably intriguing. This exhibit defines “rope” loosely as “any cord or strands of fibers united by being twisted, braided or threaded together.” Yet, in the hands of an artist, this common understanding leads to uncommon results. Marcia Young, publisher of “Fiber Art Now”, has brought together the work of twenty artists from around the country who have found unlimited expression in this seemingly mundane medium. Together, they have created a collection that is distinguished by contrasting materials and scale. Pieces include a knot that would fit into a child’s palm and a needle-laced scene viewed with a magnifying glass.  Two-dimensional pieces, majestic room-sized installations, and interactive garden sculptures command an entirely different perspective. This exhibit challenges you to see rope for what it is and what it can be: a connection to others, our environment, and ourselves.
