The Bosque Museum is pleased to announce its new summer exhibition, New Expressions in Fabric and Stitch, will open with an artist reception on Saturday, June 6, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. at the museum. The reception is open to the public and admission is free. The show is a juried national exhibit featuring eleven fabric artists from across the country.  Each of these individuals is an experienced quilter who has gone beyond traditional quilting techniques to explore the use of fabrics and materials in nontraditional ways.

The artists featured in this exhibit create with fabric, paint, and thread, using "stitch" as the common denominator. These works explore innovative techniques such monoprinting, gel transfer, painting on fusable web, photo transfer, inking and stamping, silk screening, and felting.  Each work is different from the next, revealing a wide range of individual expression, demonstrating the richness and depth that art quilting and mixed media afford.

The viewer will be amazed by the creativity demonstrated by these fabric artists. Abstract, colorful explosions intermingle with the representational and narrative. The displayed works demonstrate new ways to approach landscapes and seascapes, still life and animation, people and icons.

The curator for this exhibit is Cheryl Christian, Ph.D.  She is the publisher and editor of Needle Arts, the publication of The Embroiderers' Guild of America.  Dr. Christian‘s selection of artists and their art work is intended to give the viewer a survey of contemporary trends in fabric art.

New Expressions in Fabric and Stitch will be open to the public from June 6, 2015 until August 29, 2015. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, call (254) 675-3845.
