Collaboration at the Whittier Art Gallery in January 2014

Collaboration...when artists explore together

Collaboration Show 2014

The Whittier Art Gallery's first exhibition of the New Year showcases eleven Southern California artists who primarily work with fabrics and textiles. The exhibition gives us a glimpse of what can happen when independent artists explore working collaboratively.

The show is based on inspirations that the artists experienced together in one of three separate collaborative groups. The inspirations for the art pieces were drawn from collages, still lifes, words or artists’ journals. Each artist took the inspirations and executed personal, individual pieces of art. The show is exhibited in groupings with the inspiration.

You can meet the artists and talk to them about their work at the reception on January 11th from 2:30-5pm. Or you can discuss the artwork or collaboration on January 15th, 2014 at 1:00pm with artist Joanell Connolly or January 25th, 2014 at 2:00pm with artist Jeanette Kelly at the Whittier Art Gallery.

For this show, the artists joined together to produce a body of work based upon collaboration. Individually their credits include gallery and museum shows, exhibitions in public buildings, art festivals, textile and art quilt exhibitions. Many have had work published in books and trade magazines. Their art can be found in individual, institutional and corporate collections.

The artists exhibiting are Laurie Bucher, Peggy L. Calvert, Cynthia Catlin, Joanell Connolly, Cindy Cooksey, Stacy Hurt, Jeanette Kelly, Sharon Oblinger, Vickie Valdez-Green, Deborah Weir and Susan Willen.

'A New View: Experiencing Art Quilts' at The Framery & Fine Art Gallery

The Framery & Fine Art Gallery and
Quilts on the Wall: Fiber Artists
A New View
Experiencing Art Quilts
November 3 - November 28, 2009
This collection of works was created by Southern California artists using texttiles as their medium of expression. Painters use paint, and fiber artists use fabric and less traditional textiles to create workds which encompass abstracts to pictorials. COlor, design, composition and meaning are the foundation of all fine art and it is no less true here.

Artist Reception: Nov 14, 3-7pm
Artist Talks: Nov 21, 1pm
Artist Demonstrations: Nov 21, 2-5pm

The Framery & Fine Art Gallery
