“On the Fringe” Opening in Pleasanton
“On the Fringe: Innovative Art Quilts from California and Nevada” opens March 9, 2017 at the Harrington Art Gallery in Pleasanton, California. My piece “Sorta Sonia” is among the 20 art quilts and five fiber sculptures
chosen for display.
Following a three-month run at the Texas Quilt Museum, the exhibition will be at its Bay Area venue through April 15, with an opening reception on Saturday March 11 from 1–3 p.m., and remarks by juror Sandra Sider at 2 p.m.
Featuring work by regional members of the Studio Art Quilt Associates (SAQA), the show presents the unique character of the West Coast in a variety of diverse materials, subjects and surface-design techniques. Connotations of “fringe” include areas on and near the Pacific Rim, looking toward Asia; the geography and topography of California and Nevada as western limits of the continental United States, and artists pushing the boundaries of their medium. “This exhibition exemplifies some of the more interesting work being done today by SAQA members,” said Sider.
