This past weekend was the opening of Textiles in a Tube 2, a fiber art show at Riverworks Gallery in Greenville SC. I was the juror for that show and although I was unable to attend the opening reception, and thus haven't been able to see the works in person, I thought I could show you what's in the show. If you're a little closer to Greenville than I am, perhaps you can take in the show between now and July 15.
The twist in this show is that the entries had to arrive at the gallery inside a 36 x 3" mailing tube. But that didn't mean they had to be small -- and part of the fun was seeing what expansive pieces could emerge from their small containers.
wrote in her blog recently about the challenges of photographing and packing it.
I liked the way it occupied its space and suspect that it will be in constant motion from air currents, casting faint dancing shadows.
Because Riverworks is a small gallery, we were able to take only 15 pieces and I was sorry to leave many other worthy artworks behind. But I'll tell you about more of those we accepted in a future post.
