Showcased here is a selection of fiber artworks acquired over the past five years by Mia’s Department of Decorative Arts, Textiles, and Sculpture. Since “fiber art” embraces a wide range of media, techniques, and stylistic influences, its art forms vary widely. Maria Laszkiewicz fuses traditional Gobelin tapestry weave with three-dimensional sculpture. Norma Minkowitz creates with crochet hooks, while Linda Mendelson works on the knitting loom. Loretta Pettway’s pieced quilt made in Gee’s Bend, Alabama, speaks to Tim Harding’s use of reverse appliqué. Works by well-known artists Helena Hernmarck, Olga de Amaral, Ethel Stein, Mary Giles, and others are also included.
