Morris Museum Opens Visual Thoughts: The Art Quilts of Fiber Revolution Exhibition


MORRISTOWN, NJ.- The Morris Museum presents a new exhibition, Visual Thoughts: The Art Quilts of Fiber Revolution, which presents nineteen works by nineteen textile artists and will be on view from June 23 – October 16, 2011. Fiber Revolution is a network of professional textile artists whose collective goal is to provide greater visibility of their art while educating the public about fiber art as an exciting art form. Although the art is constructed from fabric, it is not meant to lie at the foot of the bed, but rather to hang on the wall like an oil or watercolor painting. The artists exhibiting their work under the Fiber Revolution name use fiber as their medium: dyeing it, painting it, cutting it, tearing it, stamping it, fusing it and embellishing it. The final step, stitching through the layers of fabric, brings a dimensional depth to the artwork that mere paint cannot. Fiber Revolution member Kevan Rupp Lun
