Press release

A group of Shoreline fiber artists known as Sisters in Cloth (Web) has collaborated with Guilford photographer, Rosemary DeLucco-Alpert, to create the exhibit Double Take: Photo & Fiber. The exhibit, fresh from its Spring installation at Yale’s Haskins Laboratory, will be on display at the Guilford Free Library, 67 Park Street, from July 1—30, 2011.

Double Take is a unique concept, consisting of 15 photographs and 15 art quilts. DeLucco-Alpert’s photographs of flowers have long been a favorite of Shoreline art collectors, and served as inspiration for the fiber artists. Each artist chose a photograph and created two pieces of fiber art as a response. Some focused on the colors and textures of the photos, while others captured the mood and essence of the flowers. The final exhibit is an abundance of color, texture, unique patterns, and a “garden of inspiration”.

Participating artists are Barbara Coleman Adams, Janine Anderson-Bays, Debra Bento, Rosemary DeLucco-Alpert, Vivika Hansen DeNegre, Yvette Howard, Evelyn Judson, Gail Kotowski, Carol Ludington, Ruth Anne Olson, Linda Sexton-Patrick, Marie Kadlec Shepherd, Robin Wolek, Martha Wolfe, Diane Wright and Linda Zimmerman.

The public is invited to meet the artists at a reception being held at the Guilford Free Library on Thurs., July 7, 2011 from 5:30—7:30. The exhibit may be viewed during library hours.
