Focus: Fiber 2014, a National Biennial Exhibition of Contemporary Fiber Art Opens, 9/26
by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2014

Focus: Fiber 2014, a biennial exhibition of contemporary fiber art, will open on Friday, September 26, from 7:00 -10:00 pm and will be on view through January 18, 2015 in the Bacon Gallery at the Erie Art Museum. The opening reception will feature the presentation of artist awards. The reception is free and open to the public. Presented by the Textile Art Alliance (TAA), an affiliate group of the Cleveland Museum of Art, Focus: Fiber 2014 features tapestry, embroidery, quilts, basketry, weaving, and sculpture by American artists. Juror Paola Morsiani, director of the Neuberger Museum at the State University of New York at Purchase, and former curator of contemporary art at the Cleveland Museum of Art, was charged with selecting the best work in fiber and/or fiber techniques from the pool of entries from 26 states. Personal narratives, social and political statements, representational imagery and purely abstract compositions are included. The artists chose equally diverse fiber techniques to execute and express their singular visions. Morsiani has put together a thoughtful show that celebrates fiber art in the 21st century. In her juror's statement, she writes, 'As a curator of contemporary art, I see all artists integrating textile media in their work seamlessly and creatively... [This exhibition] offers a rare opportunity to delve into the rich variety of inventions and interpretations of age-old techniques by artists skilled in these traditions and investing in expanding practices and expressions... The results expand our perspectives on our times, placing these works strongly at the intersection of life, art, and innovation.' Prize winners include Kathryn Shinko's Dirty Sampler series, which ponders our dependence on social media; Mary Michael's Seascape, a quilt that invokes transformations and transcendence; Michael Radyk's Swan Print, in which the artist weaves with recycled materials; Susie Taylor's Pearl, an innovative weaving that includes origami as an integral part of the weave structure; and Judy Rush's Portrait of the Middle Child, a commentary on interactions with adult children. Textile Art Alliance is an active organization of artists, designers, educators and collectors with a common interest in the textile and fiber arts. Formed in 1934, TAA takes as its purpose the promotion of fiber arts through exhibition, educational programs and purchases to enlarge the textile collection of the Cleveland Museum of Art. TAA has mounted an exhibition of members' work since 1936. In 1967 it became a juried show. In 1970 a decision was made to restrict the show to fiber art. The show expanded to a regional juried show in 1977 and to a national show with this exhibition. JPGS available upon request. A full color catalog of the exhibition will be available. Museum hours are Tuesday - Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., Sunday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Closed on Mondays. Museum admission is $7 for adults and $5 for students/seniors.

BWW Recap: SONS OF ANARCHY Turns a Porn Party into an Assassination
by Desiree Fantal - Sep 10, 2014

In the weeks leading up to the season premiere of FX's SONS OF ANARCHY, there was much talk about how gruesome and shocking the first few minutes of the show would be. Viewer discretion would be highly advised. Thinking back to many past episodes, this advisory seemed wise. The show started with a series of “Last season on SOA” clips to get you both excited for what was to come and angry about what had already occurred. Creator Kurt Sutter is known for toying with our emotions this way. The scenes transitioned to one of Jax (Charlie Hunnam) in prison, beating the hell out of some guy. I watched the premiere with a friend who was new to SOA. He asked who Jax's victim was and though I squinted my eyes to 20/20 vision, I couldn't tell who he was through all the blood, sweat and tears. (more...)
