Featuring exquisite photos of 800 contemporary and historic works, this first-of-its-kind book reveals how the process of casting―pouring material into a mold―has transformed our world through its history and omnipresence. In these image-rich pages, craft, fine art, design, and everyday objects offer us perspectives on casting’s unique possibilities, its place in history, and its role in contemporary object creation. Comprehensive and insightful, the book includes writings on casting as it relates to Art History (by Suzanne Ramljak), Ceramics (by Ezra Shales), Glass (by Susie Silbert), Large Metal (by Joe Becherer), Jewelry (by Jen Townsend), and Alternative Materials (by Elaine King). A multi-disciplinary approach―including everything from traditional lost wax casting in non-ferrous metals to casting rubber, glass, porcelain, plaster, and some very unexpected materials―makes this an essential resource for artists, craftspeople, historians, designers, and everyone interested in the objects that populate our world.
A new book by Anne Lee and E. Ashley Rooney, Foreword by Lois Russell, Introduction by Adrienne Sloane
Nearly 500 photos of artwork with personal insights from 76 of today's most noteworthy artists show the tremendously broad range of possibilities that working in three dimensions can offer. In conjunction with the other two books in this acclaimed series, it invites readers to re-examine fiber art through a multifaceted contemporary lens. Both established artists and emerging artists whose work is attracting notice are gathered here. Carol Milne's knitted glass and Peter Gentenaar's technique of vacuum forming and air-drying paper fibers are but a few examples of artists using new materials with traditional methods.

"You Can Leave Your Hat On"
Surface Design Association exhibition.
The intention of this exhibit is to showcase the depth and breadth of the surface designer's work in Washington State. The exhibition will contain original, innovative artwork which is technically of high quality and which results in a show of overall high impact. The concept of "Fiber Fusion" is totally up to the interpretation of the artist.
"Surface design refers to any process that gives structure, pattern, or color to fiber. Fibers used could include handmade felt, paper, fabric, clothing or basket-making materials, among others. To these surface designers dye, paint, print, stitch, bead, and otherwise enhance or embellish. More than the methods, surface designers are interested in the unlimited options for experimenting with color, texture, and design" - surfacedesign.org

ArtXchange Gallery presents Like Mother…, a traveling exhibition co-curated by artist L. Kelly Lyles. Continuing our ‘Women’s Work’ series that explores women’s lives from a global perspective, this group exhibition features diverse reflections on the profound bond between mother and child.
First conceived to feature women artists, the exhibition was originally titled Like Mother (Like Daughter) to reflect the popular axiom and explored relationships between mothers and daughters. At ArtXchange Gallery, the exhibition has evolved to include both men and women, expanded to 20 regional artists working in a broad range of mediums and offers an enhanced focus on multicultural interpretations of the theme
