Nancy Bartach is a California textile artist whose work has shown in two of the recent exhibits that I’ve seen lately.
Accelerating – Decelerating was shown in the IFA’s “Multiplicities, New Directions in Fiber Exhibit in Warren, RI last month. This piece draws you right to it with it’s color and light and its lively sense of rhythm.
Dappled was at the Whistler Museum Gallery in the “How Does Your Garden Grow” Exhibit. Again, that sense of movement and light attracts your eye immediately. The undulating patterns give it a life of its own.
Last night I drove to Warren, RI to see the exhibit at the ICA, Multiplicities, New Directions in Fiber, and it was worth the drive through Boston and Fall River at rush hour!
There was so much to take in! I can’t say that there was anything strikingly new but it was a good representation of what is among the best of contemporary fiber art, with some pieces incorporating unexpected materials.
First, I’ll share with you some of my favorite, not all, because I can’t sit for longer at my computer so I’ll share more later.
