Up and coming Seattle fiber artist Suzanne Tidwell will create a small installation of her Artificial Light exhibition in the courtyard outside Redmond City Hall, 15670 NE 85th Street.
On Thursday, December 1 from noon to 1pm beginning in the Redmond City Hall lobby, Tidwell will be on-site to talk about and tour this installation. She will be joined by artist and art historian Sandra Baker for a talk about the history of fiber arts and how it has evolved from craft to art.
“When I see a length of material or a ball of yarn, I instantly know what it should be”, stated Suzanne Tidwell. “For me, art is the realization of the many ideas I see in my head. These ideas evolve from images that come to me as bright flashes of thought. I manipulate these pictures over and over in my mind, rearranging and re-ordering, adding and subtracting elements until my idea is clear enough to become something real.”
The mini Artificial Light exhibition will be installed through February and is a preview of the full exhibition Tidwell will install at Anderson Park on March 8, 2012.
This event is presented by the Redmond Arts Commission and VALA Eastside. For more information, visit www.redmond.gov/ArtsSeason
