The Beaufort Art Association is featuring the work of the Fiber Artists of Beaufort (FAB) during the months of January and February. Participating artists are Sandra Atkins, Eileen Berchem, Laura Burcin, Margo Duke, Barbara James, Sari Kandel, Kim Keats, Laurie Lovell, Linda Patalive and Cynthia Zeiss.
FAB is a working group of 15 accomplished Lowcountry artisans whose work represents a broad range of contemporary textile art. Most of the artists have affiliations with local galleries as well as exhibiting and teaching across the U.S. and internationally. FAB’s mission is to inspire and motivate its members, support each other’s art work and to educate the public about contemporary fiber art.
The participating artists’ work features a variety of fiber techniques including knitting, weaving, nuno and needle felting, natural dyeing, paper making and sculpture, silk painting and hand-spun yarn. The featured works include one-of-a-kind wall art, as well as wearable and three-dimensional pieces for the home.
The show will run from January 7 through February 24 and there will be a reception to meet the artists from 5 pm to 7:30 pm on Friday, January 11.
