Lopez Artist Guild presents a new exhibit, “Material Matters”, featuring textile artists Sheila Metcalf and Barbara Nepom. Opening reception with the artists will be Friday, June 22 from 5-7 at Lopez Center and includes refreshments. 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.
All are welcome!
