Please join us for the opening of the exhibit “12-Cycles” at the Contra Costa College Eddie Rhodes Gallery on February 4th from 2-5 pm.
Westies is a group of 12 female fiber/fibre artists that was formed during the pandemic with communication through Zoom. We live in the western part of the United States and Canada and are all members of Art Cloth Network (ACN): a juried group of 30+ fiber/fibre artists from the United States and Canada (http://artclothnetwork.com).
To get to know one another better and have a greater creative outlet during the pandemic, the Westies began the 12 Cycles challenge in January of 2021—a SUPER Round Robin. Our round-robin involved circulating and responding to a growing stack of visual ideas that arrived without verbal or written commentary or explanation. Each artist had time to develop a new idea to add to the group based only on what was sent to them, and without knowing what the final collection would be.
