Expanding on the conversation between artists working in the shared medium of quilting, "Fiber Dialogues" presents a group of Southern California artists interested in responding to works in the "Quilt National" exhibition concurrently on view at OMA October 14, 2012 through February 10, 2013.
Inspired by visual, conceptual or technical cues, this counterpoint exhibit creates a dialogue between the two exhibitions and participating artists. Featured artists include Jane LaFazio and Sheila Frampton-Cooper, among others.
The exhibition opens with a preview reception on Saturday, October 13 from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m. The reception is complimentary for OMA members and $10 for nonmembers and includes creative appetizers by OMA’s Culinary Arts Committee and an open beer and wine bar.
The intention of "Fiber Dialogues" is to give voice to regional contemporary quilt artists and engage them with the "Quilt National" exhibition on view at OMA. While "Quilt National" is an international juried exhibition, OMA wanted to stay true to its mission of presenting artwork and artists with a strong connection to California. By inviting a small group of artists to synthesize and interpret works in the "Quilt National" exhibition, they were able to find innate existing connections that provided an intriguing platform for the universal role of image-making through contemporary quilting.
