Artworks Gallery welcomes new members Nan Leaman and Janet King as Featured Artist during the month of February.

Leaman, a fiber artist, creates one of a kind wearables. Nan says, “I love working with color and creating texture through color and various surface design techniques.”  Nan’s pieces start out as white cloth, either wool or silk, then they are carefully dyed using a variety of techniques. King sculpts 3-D felt in unique abstract sculptures, traditional bowls and vessels, and  illuminated structures covered with a sheer felt. Janet also makes one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces using extra soft merino, silk ribbons, natural stones, dichroic glass, fused glass and more. Janet says, “I love that everything I create is made from natural, organic and renewable raw materials.”

Exhibit Sponsored by The Boeing Company

Explore the diverse media, creative techniques, and visual traditions in this exhibit of fiber surface design from artists living and working on Whidbey Island, WA.

Whidbey Island Surface Design is a group of artists living and working on a beautiful island in Puget Sound. All are members of the Surface Design Association an, while we work in many different media, techniques, and visual traditions, we share a fascination and ongoing interest in embellishing the surfaces of our artworks through the use of surface design techniques.

Surface design encompasses the coloring, patterning, and structuring of fiber and fabric. This involves creative exploration of processes such as dyeing, painting, printing, stitching, embellishing, quilting, weaving, knitting, felting, and paper making.
