I was able to see the last day of Snyderman Works Gallery’s Fiber Philadelphia show on April 28. Fiber Philadelphia is a biennial celebration of fiber arts that takes place across the city. Galleries and art centers showcase a fiberart form or show. This coincides with the biennial show Art Quilt Elements at the Wayne Art Center in Wayne, PA. 2014 was the 8th international fiber biennial.
Snyderman-Works Gallery is the premier gallery for fiber art, IMHO. The space is gorgeous, they understand the medium and and the staff is attentive without being pushy. They are very knowledgeable about the work and the artists. I was impressed when I mentioned I was from Tucson and a staff member told me that one of their artists is also represented by Obsidian Gallery here in town. She had nothing to gain by mentioning this, but I bet the artist is sure grateful she did.
But there is some really interesting work to show you, and so I begin. These are just a few of the works that caught my eye. The gallery has better photos of the 2012 Biennial on their website here if you want a closer look or to learn more about the artists.
