Exhibits on display in June at East Carolina University's Gray Gallery highlight trends and creative artwork with fiber. The Spotlight on Student Fiber Trends: A Juried Exhibition includes the work of 38 graduate and undergraduate students from Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.  The exhibit arose from a collaborative effort  by ECU and the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance.

Edward Lambert, Fiber Artist: A Retrospective honors the work of the late Edward Lambert, a fiber artist and professor emeritus at the University of Georgia. Lambert died in May 2011, following a long career in art and education. His works focused on fiber, with late career influence from popular culture, including television, sports and tattoos.

The exhibitions were opened June 1 with an opening reception and remarks by ECU art professor Christine Zoller, head of ECU's fiber arts program; curator Ray Pierotti, independent studio artist/composer; and awards juror Jane Doub, North Carolina fiber artist and gallery co-owner and president of Piedmont Craftsmen.

The exhibitions run through June 29.
