Juror Deann Rubin
Juror: Deann Rubin

 
Juror's Statement:
     As a juror, artist and viewer of art, I look for the unique voice. Successful art works marry command of technique, texture and emotion. The author of mature art responds to fiber as a medium but steps beyond manipulating materials to reach her or his own melody or song. 
     Of all the pieces submitted for the show, “Fiber Content II”, the embroidery  “After the Fall”, had an energy and originality, I responded to. The mixed media quilted block, “Transition II”, showed a sensitive fiber response to elements of design - color, line, texture and repetition. The dimensional white figure in the black frame, “The Dwelling Place” was strong, with a commanding mystery, transcending its small size and paper media. I thank Framations Gallery, for the opportunity to jury this fiber show. I hope the gallery continues to grow this fiber exhibition.
