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.

Have you grown in skills and techniques? Have you taken a genre of fiber and explored it in a new and exciting way? Have you transformed materials used? What does Transformation mean to you? Everyone’s path through the pandemic is personal and unique. Transformation celebrates your journey and how changes in your creative process have resulted from your experiences.

Opening at Hudgens on May 6, 2023 and runs through July 15, 2023.




Tommye McClure Scanlin, Professor Emerita, University of North Georgia, Dahlonega, has been weaving for over forty years and has explored many different techniques for creating images with woven structures. In 1988 she left most other weaving methods behind as she began her journey in tapestry weaving. Her tapestries have been exhibited nationally and internationally since 1990.  Scanlin is a Fellow of the Hambidge Center for the Creative Arts and of the Lillian E. Smith Center.  She is the author of two books, The Nature of Things: Essays of a Tapestry Weaver and Tapestry Design Basics and Beyond: Planning and Weaving with Confidence.
