CALIFORNIA FIBERS: TIME

April 1 – May 6, 2017

Camarillo, CA -  The Studio Channel Islands Blackboard Gallery is pleased to present  California Fibers:Time from April 1 – May 6, 2017, with an opening reception on April 1st from 4-6 PM.

California Fibers:Time  features the work of  seventeen members of California Fibers  - Linda Anderson, Charlotte Bird, Ashley Blalock, Carrie Burckle, Doshi, Gail Fraser, Polly Jacobs Giacchina,  Lynne Hodgman, Chari Myers, Kathy Nida, Michael Rohde, Mary Beth Schwartzenberger, Rebecca Smith, Cameron Taylor-Brown, Lydia Tjioe Hall, Peggy Weidemann and Lori Zimmerman.

All works in the exhibit address the theme of “Time” as interpreted by each artist.  For example, Linda Anderson describes her work Becoming as a rite of passage  “marking a moment of maturation…and… two boys experiencing that moment in time.”  Kathy Nida deals with “time’s increasing speed and its toll on living things as we age…”  Peggy Weidemann views time as “much more than a clock…it is ever changing…and can live in our memories as well as the present and influence our future.” Mary Beth Schwartzenberger ‘s work Inscription places “our human experiences of today next to people from so long ago (as) a thoughtful reminder that we as humans are…more the same than different.”  Lydia Tjioe Hall’s series One a Day began the year after her daughter was born. “Knowing that I would not have much time to work on larger pieces, I decided to work on small pieces that would add up to a larger installation in the end.”

A gallery walkthrough is scheduled on Thursday, April 6, at 5:30 PM with Michael Rohde, and a panel discussion with Carrie Burckle,  Mary Beth Schwartzenberger, Cameron Taylor-Brown and Lori Zimmerman is planned for Saturday, April 22 at 1 PM.

California Fibers:Time will run through May 6, 2017. Artists will be present at the opening on April 1 from 4-6 PM. The Channel Islands Blackboard Gallery is located at  2222 East Ventura Blvd., Camarillo, CA 93010. Gallery hours are Tuesday – Friday from 11-5 PM and Saturday from 11-3 PM.  For more information contact Katherine Cooksey, Gallery Director, at 805-383-1368 or at kcooksey@studiochannelislands.org
