Edwardsville Art Center hosts Surface Design Association’s “Future Tense 2019” exhibition on view September 6-October 11, 2019.
This special exhibit celebrates the creative work of student artists, designers, and makers working with or inspired by fiber or textile materials or techniques. The exhibit offers a glimpse into the future of contemporary fibers by presenting the very best work being made by students in the field today. Jurors are Tamryn McDermott , artist and Campus Arts Associate for the Campus Arts Initiative at Penn State University. Tamryn also manages the traveling exhibition, “Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America,” a collaboration between the National Basketry Organization and the University of Missouri; and Kim Eichler-Messmer, Associate Professor in Fiber at the Kansas City Art Institute where she has taught surface design, quilting, and natural dye since 2008.
