The 2023 Juried Exhibition – Transformation

Transformation…In the period leading up to Transformation, we have experienced a global pandemic, isolation, and unexpected changes to how we work, live, and socialize. This drastic shift has brought out a resilience, which has led us to find new approaches to creating works of art, including how we source materials, produce fiber arts, and innovate using techniques and skills.
