TRANSFORMATIONS

That is what we do as artists: transform. We start with simple materials -- as fiber artists that means cloth, thread, batting, paint, dye and more -- and we transform the materials into artful stories, images and messages. Art then transforms us, with emotional responses, questions, new ways to see the world.
This exhibit of abstract art quilts is about the transformation that takes place when artists look beneath and beyond the images of realism and narrative content to see and expose the bones of what makes a painting or other piece of art “work.” This is art that is about the FORM in transform. These abstract works are about line, shape, composition, movement and pattern, energy and emotion. Perhaps they require a little more from the viewer -- we are not relying upon subject matter to tell a visual story — but nevertheless we are transforming the visions in our minds’ eyes into art work that has impact, inspires emotion or curiosity. We hope our work helps our viewers look beyond an object into that which is non-verbal, a relationship more akin to listening to music than looking at a photograph.
Sherri Lipman McCauley
Sherri Lipman McCauley, a fiber artist who lives and works in Lakeway, Texas, brings her life experiences together in the creation of her artwork. McCauley is educated as a teacher, trained as a programmer, and has emerged as an artist, creating serendipitous fiber designs. Her design work often starts with black and white marks, with the addition of colors and shapes to reflect emotions and events in her life. The color and shapes represent the artist’s interaction with the world in which we live. With many experiences yet to encounter, many dyes and paints to explore, and many yards of fabric to tangle with, McCauley hopes her abstract art provokes the viewer and allows them to connect with the abstractions, finding delight in the view. http://sherrilipmanmccauley.blogspot.com
Susie Monday
The work and life of Susie Monday is informed and inspired by the Texas Borderlands where she works and teaches in person and online from her studio near Pipe Creek, Texas. Although much of here previous work was narrative and folk art inspired, a couple of years ago the began exploring abstract compositions, influence by her early art training in the late 1960s, in the shadow of abstract expressionism. A studio art graduate from Trinity University, Susie has written many articles, co-authored a book on creativity for parents, and teaches and lectures in person and online about digital design, creative process and surface design. www.susiemonday.com
Austin Art Group
This group of textile artists and art quilters worked collaboratively together for more than eight years, creating a body of work around common themes. Artists include: Anne Holliday Abbott, Frances Holliday Alford, Betty Hildebrand Colburn, Jean Dahlgren, Barb Forrister, Pearl Gonzalez, Connie Hudson, Leslie Tucker Jenison, Raewyn Khosla, Sherri Lipman McCauley, Diane Sandlin, Susan Lewis Storey, Niki Valentine Vick, and Kathy York. This collaboration took place during the time all the artists lived in Austin, Texas.
