Fiber, Paper, Scissors showcases four artists from the Greenville area whose emphasis on their chosen medium celebrates the beauty of cloud formations and South Carolina's landscapes.
Douglas Piper (Greenville, SC), Meredith Piper (Greenville, SC), and Mark Mulfinger (Greenville, SC) see an unexplained beauty in the clouds which is intrinsically tied to their their craft. Their body of work Amongst the Clouds consists of various mediums including work based in batik, watercolor, acrylic and oil paint, block prints, and textile. Their work will on display in Gallery A.
Over the course of 100 consecutive days, Sarah Mandell (Greenville, SC) created one fiber painting per day. Focusing on South Carolina’s landscapes, her 100 Days, 100 Fibers in Gallery B induces fascination over this state’s abundance of sceneries and landmarks. This collection of fiber painting shares Sarah’s appreciation for all the beauty SC has to offer.
Sarah Mandell received funding for this project in part by the Metropolitan Arts Council which receives support from the City of Greenville, BMW Manufacturing Company, Michelin North America, Inc., SEW Eurodrive and the South Carolina Arts Commission.
