  • SAQA Featured Artist: Pat Kroth
    Pat Kroth Pat Kroth – Verona, Wisconsin, USA Artist Statement The process of gathering, making, handling and manipulation of the materials is an important element of my work. This has led to the creation of a series of contemporary fiber art works, which include tiny fiber fragments, found objects and sheer overlays. Sometimes the surface vibrates with the allure of colorful candy wrappers, toys, buttons, feathers, and fortune cookie fortunes. Fibers, threads, and objects have been found, discovered, donated and otherwise acquired and incorporated into the work. These abstract fiber art works utilize color, texture and movement to explore a variety of themes. Sometimes the works incorporate recognizable shapes and symbols. Working spontaneously, I create entire surfaces of color using fiber, and textural elements. Each work is then energetically machine stitched. I truly feel that I am “painting” with fabric and thread. The “blurred,” soft, tactile qualities of fiber, fabric and thread sometimes become the vehicle for a ... read more

  • NBO Members in “New Variations in Basketry”
    Traditionally, baskets were multipurpose vessels made from available materials suited to their function. In more recent times, as borders were crossed and ideas exchanged, traditional patterns, styles, and materials came to be shared internationally by artists and designers. While still honoring their historically universal kinship, these contemporary pieces have transitioned from solely functional containers into objects reflecting individual artistic expression. The twenty-one artists chosen for this exhibition have created exemplary objects that use both traditional and experimental materials, with much attention paid to color, texture, form, and craftsmanship. NBO members featured in the exhibition are Jackie Abrams,  Dona Anderson, Pamela Becker, Lanny Bergner,  John Garrett,  Gyongy Laky, Elizabeth Whyte Schulze, Deborah Smith , Matt Tommey, and Jennifer Zurick. More information at Snyderman-Works Galleries Image shown: Lanny Bergner, Fusion Vessel, Stainless steel mesh, wire, silicone, H16″ x W14″ x D14″, 2013 ... read more

  • Color Series: Shocking Purple Shag
    Yes….  I know….  Shag has many meanings and I purposefully used it to see where it would land us with keyword searches. Looking for the steamier side of life? You’re in the wrong place! We’re looking at color here and in this post, some shag carpeting that has some shock value. A Facebook friend posted a link to this house for sale in Hillingdon, Middlesex in the UK. From the outside, a beautiful, large, normal-looking house: As you can tell from the featured image, walk inside and WOWZERS! Elvis hideout! Or, as a friend said, “Prince has been here…”  What really got me was the bathroom: This is where the purple shag comes in…..  Furry porcelain just does not seem right in my book of sensibilities. There is much more on the site so make sure and go look at the rest of the pics!  Another friend once told me about a friend ... read more
