Velocity of Textiles
2015 Chattahoochee Biennial of Textiles

May 14, 2015 to July 31, 2015

The Chattahoochee Handweavers Guild announces an international exhibition of art that references and/or uses fiber, fiber techniques and fiber technologies in innovative ways.

Deeply rooted in tradition, textile arts are an expression of the hands and the heart of the maker. Textile artists engage with the material quality of their medium. We create unity and function with fiber, color, texture, design, and pattern. This symbiotic relationship of material and vision creates an emotive response in both the maker and the viewer; when engaged with the work, both are transported by the work at hand.


Work that reflects the forward trajectory of textiles within a twenty first century intersection of conceptual innovation, new and old techniques and materials, coupled with traditional attention to craftsmanship
