Digital Technology - Traditional Techniques (January 24 – February 22, 2014)
Digital technology has revolutionized the way we live, work, play, and create. In today's world of increasing virtual reality, the textile artist has found a way to harness these new technologies while also remaining connected to the physical aspects of the craft.
The once defined lines between craft, art, and digital design have now blurred and blended together to become a part of the contemporary world of textile art.
Digital Technology – Traditional Techniques is an international juried exhibition that showcases the application of technology in the expanding field of textiles while celebrating the traditional "hand" that remains the driving force of the textile artist.
