‘Color and Texture’ Interpreted in New Fiber Arts Exhibit at Gallery Main Street

Posted: Updated:

TYLER (KYTX)- Gallery Main Street will open its new "Color and Texture" art exhibit with a public reception Saturday, March 15 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. at the gallery, 110 W. Erwin.

"Color and Texture" is the second juried exhibit of 2014 for the gallery, which is managed by the City of Tyler Main Street Department in cooperation with the volunteers of the Downtown Tyler Arts Coalition and Heart of Tyler, Inc.

The exhibit prospectus explains fiber art as "…all traditional fiber techniques such as spinning, weaving, embroidery, quilting, sewing, dyeing and others, as well as traditional techniques with non-traditional materials such as weaving wire or metal, fabric collage and three-dimensional sculptures."

"This is probably the most unique, diverse exhibit of the year," said Beverly Abell, department leader of the City of Tyler Main Street Department. "You will see everything from portraits in fiber, wood, metal, triptychs, jewelry, clothing and so much more.

"‘Color and Texture' is an exhibit you do not want to miss, just for its sheer variety," said Abell, noting that more than 50 works of art will be on exhibit.

The fiber arts exhibit is a collaborative project with the East Texas Fiber Artists group. In addition to the monetary award for Best in Show that is given by Gallery Main Street, the fiber artists will present merit award certificates.

The opening reception is free to the public and will feature refreshments, music and an opportunity to meet the artists. The event is come-and-go and offers an opportunity for visitors to also enjoy downtown restaurants and other venues.

"Color and Texture" will be on exhibit through May 5. Those who want more information on the exhibit or future Gallery Main Street exhibits should go to www.DowntownTylerArts.com or call the gallery at (903) 593-6905.
