Fibre Art Network’s Ekphrastic Exhibition: The word ‘ekphrasis’ denotes a rhetorical device whereby one medium of art is created to relate to another medium of art. Usually ekphrastic poetry is created to respond to a piece of art.
FAN has put a distinctive spin on this process by inviting 12 well-known Canadian poets to contribute a poem of their choosing. Each of the twelve poems has been interpreted by four FAN members in a wide range of styles. The Ekphrastic exhibition is a unique showcase of the collective talents of these Canadian poets and fibre artists.
Conversations is an exhibition based upon the conversation between two artists. 24 partnered pairs through joint discussion will set the boundaries for their imagery so that the two pieces will respond or relate to each other. The exhibition features the personal visions of FAN artists using a wide range of traditional and contemporary fibre-art techniques in a variety of styles from realistic to abstract.
