“In Flux”, Southeast Fiber Art Educators touring exhibition

2019-20, touring SEFEA exhibition at East Tennessee State University, Johnson City, TN, Marshall University, Huntington, WV, Berea College, Berea, KY, James Madison University, Harrisonburg, VA.

Curated around the central idea of change and reflection, “In Flux” acknowledges those who came before us and anticipates those who will come after us. The exhibition is intended to bring together art that explores and asks a range of questions from a variety of approaches. It travels from school to school, because the individuals in this group are spread among schools throughout the region. It teaches because we as individuals teach.

“In Flux’s” purpose aligns with the mission of the association – which is “dedicated to the continuing interchange of knowledge, the exchange of ideas, and the joy of creating unlimited possibilities within textile medium. SEFEA is committed to maintaining textile traditions while opening pathways for crossing new boundaries.” www.sefea.us
