National Fiber Directions Exhibition 2013
Two of Sallie’s pieces were selected to be included in a national, juried show that takes place in Wichita, KS, during April and most of May. This exhibit appears at the Wichita Center for the Arts and was juried by Pauline Verbeek-Cowart, chair of the fiber program at the Kansas City Art Institute.
The two pieces that will be shown include Bird and Bound/Bond that are sculptural figures made with muslin bags used by scallop fishermen and dyed by her hands using Japanese natural dye called “kakishibu”, then formed using fine hand stitches and tied jute yarn.
Exhibition dates: April 5 – May 19, 2013
