Alicia Czechowski creates vividly representational oil paintings
Featuring work by artists who are usurping the use of paint by incorporating the methodologies and canons of painting as starting points for a greater exploration into fiber work. Painting with needle and thread, for the most part, the artists create textile tableaus that explore established genres like portraiture, abstraction and the landscape. Using a variety of media, together the works display techniques in quilting, weaving, embroidery, felting and wearable art. Exhibiting artists include Wendy Carpenter, Pam Collins, Susan Hoffmann, Peter Horjus, Sandra Martinez, Heidi Parkes, Laura Shrewsbury and Sandra Wysock.
