Curated by Paula Rosen, fibers and weaving professor at Drury University, this exhibition shows a diverse range of contemporary directions in the fiber arts movement.
Paula Rosen’s work includes large floor weavings made from recycled and found materials and a series of landscapes and ‘sheep portraits’ inspired by the actual sheep that produced the wool for her needle-felted sculptures.
Pam RuBert’s studio art quilts portray contemporary cultural themes using bold graphics, patterns and textures in the humorous and angst-filled world of her cartoon character PaMdora, in the fantasy world of “Wish You Were Hair,” and a new work portraying “Prince Charming’s Shoe Sale.”
Ellen Neville studied at the Kansas City Art Institute, the School of Art Institute of Chicago, and is a recent graduate from Drury University. She is inspired by current events and politics, influenced by vintage embroidery patterns and samplers, and creates contemporary embroideries and weavings.
The outside of Pool Art Center has also been yarn bombed by Wendy Anderson, Rachel McCowen, Meganne Rosen O’Neal, Laura Province, Jessi Honeycutt, Erin Volker, and students in the Drury Fiber Arts program.
