Glass + Fiber: A Juxtaposition is a collaborative show from glass artist Beth Himsworth and fiber artist Deb Johnson. It explores the contrast and harmony of these two disparate media. The dimensionality of the work allows the viewer to experience the relationship between the textural elements of the fiber collage and the sleek solidity of the glass.
Beth Himsworth’s glass works integrate movement, drama and rich color. Her diverse exploration of this medium showcases the wide array of textures, translucence and color, drawing the viewer’s eye into the shapes and rhythms.
Deb Johnson takes inspiration from painting with fiber resulting in graphic, textural collage. Her two-dimensional and wearable works merge deconstructed textiles, yarn and raw fiber in what appear to be accidental collisions of color.
Both artists will be at the gallery September 7 from 2:00 - 8:00 for the opening of the exhibit and Gallery Hop.
