“Japanese Contemporary Fiber Sculpture in Miniature”
"Japanese Contemporary Fiber Sculpture in Miniature" is comprised of 50 contemporary, highly complex sculptures by 50 distinguished Japanese artists. These unique pieces are made by every imaginable fiber construction technique - hand and machine loom weaving, felting, knotting, looping, bending, gluing - and in a range of materials from traditional natural fibers as silk, wool, cotton, and linen, as well as synthetics as nylon, polyester, and rayon, to Japanese papers, newspaper, steel wire, window screening, plastic tubing and the like.

Tina Cassara and David Sapp: “Threads, Lines, Traces”
*Euclid Avenue Gallery
Threads, Lines, Traces draws upon a subtle interplay between the line of a fiber construction and a graphite line drawn on paper. Tina Cassara’s most recent fiber-based work directly influenced David Sapp’s 2014 graphite on paper drawings. The two artists consider Threads, Lines, Traces, at The Sculpture Center, as the beginning of an ongoing artistic experimentation in aesthetic influence and different means to develop abstract narratives.
