Into the Nature brings together the works of seven artists, all working in the medium of fibers. These artists are inspired and informed by our physical world.
Their selected works examine beauty, rhythm, conflict and topography, how the natural world is impacted by man and how human existence makes marks on the world.
The exhibition also features a solo component of handwoven tapestries and works on paper by Tommye McClure Scanlin, whose work was a catalyst for the show. Scanlin’s southern Appalachian habitat serves as inspiration for her work. Her studio will be re-created in a portion of the gallery where the artist will give regular weaving demonstrations.
