Description

The Southern Highland Craft Guild opened its final Main Gallery exhibition of the 2021 year with the fourth edition of the popular Members Show, “Black and White.” The show opened on August 28th and has been a main attraction for visitors to the Folk Art Center. “This show is the most popular theme for members and visitors alike. It happens roughly every ten years and each edition has been unique and beautiful,” states Nikki Josheff, Curator of Collections for the Guild. There are 77 objects by 75 members and some pieces have already sold. The show will be up until January 16, 2022.

Disciplines represented include quilting, chair caning, hand-built and wheel-thrown ceramics, felt work, batiking, glasswork, stone carving, jewelry, wooden flutes, woodcarving, tapestry, woodturning, print-making, and more.

“Black and White” will be open until January, 2022. Admission to the Folk Art Center is free. The Folk Art Center is located at Milepost 382 on the Blue Ridge Parkway in east Asheville. Headquarters to the Southern Highland Craft Guild, the Center also houses three galleries, a library, a craft shop and a Blue Ridge Parkway information desk and bookstore.

My work explores and manipulates natural and synthetic fibers: fabric, thread, cord, string, yarn, wool, ribbon, silk, felt…anything fiber. While I never follow a blueprint or set of rules, my process generally involves machine stitching, hand stitching, layering, fusing, cutting, melting, burning, and painting; in no particular order! Creating texture to generate movement in my pieces is important to me. I want the surface of my work to invite the viewer’s eyes to travel over it; pull them in for a closer look; then surprise them with more details not seen from a couple steps back.
