"Intersections 6: fiber/DIMENSIONS and Beyond" is an exhibition of more than 40 fiber artists whose works eclipse the boundaries of tradition.
fiber/DIMENSIONS artists bring a diversity of disciplines to their contemporary dimensional work, from weaving, felting, and paper making to woodworking, printing, and welding. The artists mix mediums and materials into forms that transcend definition. The vitality and potential of fiber is what unites them in their unique fiber/DIMENSIONS collaborative. "Intersections 6" is curated by Lisah Horner, San Francisco Bay Area artist and curator.
A San Francisco Bay Area art presence that has achieved international recognition, fiber/DIMENSIONS is the realization of its founders' vision. In 1990 a group which had participated in a compelling college fiber sculpture program launched a forum to sustain that momentum. We developed a monthly schedule of discussions, critiques, tours, guest speakers, and demonstrations, and have sponsored two art community symposia.
fiber/DIMENSIONS has presented 13 group exhibits, most notably "Intersections" presented biannually in 2002, 2004, 2006, 2008, and 2010 at the San Francisco Presidio, sponsored by Fort Mason Foundation grants. Exhibits have been featured in Artweek and reviewed in Fiberarts Magazine and Surface Design Journal. Fiberarts Design Book Six selected submissions from 36 countries to represent the scope of contemporary fiber art; six were fiber/DIMENSIONS artists. Fiberarts Design Book Seven included eight f/D artists.
“Although it has been (over) twenty years since we first formed, the current fiber/DIMENSIONS still upholds the same principles….to being creative with the goals of continued excellence in workmanship and creativity.” –Cecelia Thorner, original member of fiber/DIMENSIONS.
