Textile art exhibit opens in Waynesville

Written by 

art textileartThe exhibit “Textures” featuring the work of nine textile artists will open next week at the Haywood County Arts Council’s Gallery 86, in downtown Waynesville.

“Textures” run from March 13 through April 6, with an artist’s reception held from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, March 22.

Textiles were first formally used as protection to the elements, social cues, and to soften, shield, and/or embellish living spaces. Most textile arts are begun by spinning and plying to make yarn, which in turn is made into fabric for clothing and soft furnishings such as quilts. There are many forms of textile arts including embroidery, needlework, weaving, and quilting. The exhibit celebrates the many forms and techniques of textile art. 

The featured artists include Amy Putansu, Suzanne Gernandt, Liz Spear, Laurel Tewes, Peggy Debell, Elizabeth Garlington, Kathrin Weber, Catharine Ellis and Neal Howard.

The project was supported by the N.C. Arts Council, a division of the Department of Cultural Resources.
