WEB EXCLUSIVE GALLERY:
Strong Work Seen in Philly

This past spring in Philadelphia, a host of galleries exhibited fiber work. A steady stream of visiting artists, museum curators, collectors, and Philly art lovers toured the shows. Many strong works were on view, and we published some in our September/October issue. More are shown below.

For two shows, CD catalogs are available: the Fiber 2006 biennial at Snyderman-Works Galleries (the show traveled to Peters Valley Craft Center in Layton, New Jersey, after its showing in Philadelphia), and the biennial juried exhibition Art Quilts at the Sedgwick.
