Explore Fiber is a collaborative website showcasing and exploring fiber as a fine art material.
Flight Patterns is an exhibition of fiber art, featuring twenty-six international artists working with fiber and fiber techniques. The exhibition is installed in display cases at the T-North Concourse at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, and will remain on view until the end of April 2015. The exhibition is sponsored by the Airport Art Program and is curated by Dorothy Moye of Davis-Moye & Associates .
This exhibition showcases a selection from the endless possibilities of textile art that is not only within the traditions of the textile arts, but also pushes the boundaries and definitions of the medium in concept and execution. The theme, Flight Patterns, served as reference and inspiration for participating artists, referring not only to the location at the world’s busiest airport but also to the many uses of the word and concept of patterns that are frequently used in connection with textiles.
Although the exhibition can be enjoyed in person only by the flying public (it is behind security lines), the more than 95 million travelers arriving, departing, and passing through the airport annually may visit the T-North Concourse area to view the exhibition. For those not scheduled for Atlanta flying time, be sure to check out the video. An online catalog may be accessed on davismoye.com after May 1, 2014. In May 2015, after de-installation at the airport, the exhibition will travel across town to be installed at the Welch School Gallery at Georgia State University through July 2015. Opening and closing dates for this venue will be announced soon.
The exhibition is sponsored by the Airport Art Program of the Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, David Vogt and Katherine Dirga, managers. Thanks in part to collaborations with artists, museums, galleries and private collectors, the Airport Art Program showcases world-class temporary exhibitions in spaces throughout the concourses and main terminal.
