Counterpoints

Hi folks,

The Missouri Fiber Artists’ exhibit Counterpoints is on display now at the University of Central Missouri Gallery of Art & Design in Warrensburg, MO.

Missouri Fiber Artists Counterpoints January 11-30, 2021 | Webster Fiber Arts

All of the pieces in this exhibit are collaborative works between two MoFA members. We were randomly paired, then asked to explore an element of art: line, color, shape, form, value, space, or texture. My partner, Amber R. Clifford-Napoleone, and I chose color for our element. I focused on the presence of color, and Amber focused on the absence of color. We were each to finish about half of a 10” x 10” piece, then ship it off to the other person to complete the piece.

Here are our completed pieces, hanging in the UCM gallery space (photo by University of Central Missouri):

One of the things I loved about this project was that Amber and I both interpreted “half of a 10” x 10” piece” very literally—we both sent 5” x 10” pieces to each other for finishing.

Counterpoints runs through January 30, 2021. You can see all the pieces in the exhibit here.

5 x 5 x 5

Hi folks,

I have a piece in another show of tiny art. The pieces in 5 x 5 x 5 are even smaller than the ones in the Fun Sized Art show I was in earlier this month. As you may have guessed from the name of the show, all of the pieces in this exhibit are 25 square inches or less.

My work for this show is “Flowers by the Stream,” a gelatin print with embroidered and crocheted details. This piece will be on display at River Oaks Square Art Center in Alexandria, Louisiana through February 15, 2020. The opening reception is Friday, November 15, 2019 from 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM.

Between the Threads

Hi folks,

Innovations in Textiles continues in the St. Louis area this month. I have a piece in “Between the Threads,” a national juried exhibition of works of fiber at Webster Arts. Webster Arts and Webster Fiber Arts aren’t related, and the similarity in our names made for fun times at FedEx when it was time to ship my piece.

Blooming by Annie Webster | Webster Fiber Arts

My work for this exhibit is “Blooming.” The base of the piece is a gelatin print in acrylic on cotton. I used a dried up zinnia bloom in the printing process for this one, as well as some bubble wrap. I added embroidered and crocheted details with cotton floss.

Blooming Detail by Annie Webster | Webster Fiber Arts

“Blooming” will be on display at Webster Arts November 12 through December 20, 2019. The opening reception is Tuesday, November 12, 2019 from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
