I have to give some credit to the Bellevue Arts Museum, which has featured crochet work in multiple exhibits in recent years. Right now there is an exhibition going on called High Fiber Diet that celebrates the fiber arts and does include some crochet, including the work of terrific portrait artist Jo Hamilton.
About Bellevue Art Museum
Bellevue Arts Museum (BAM) is a unique museum in that it focuses on the intersection between art, design and craft. I love this! I mentioned this museum before when Nathan Vincent had work featured in a multi-artist exhibit there. I also mentioned an exhibit called The Mysterious Content of Softness that was at Cornell but I should mention now that it was first shown at Bellevue Art Museum. Bellevue Art Museum is located in Bellevue, Washington here in the US.
About High Fiber Diet
A current exhibition at BAM is High Fiber Diet, which opened last month and runs through February.
From the website:
“With its versatility and ready availability, fiber has long had its firm place in the Do-It-Yourself movement, yet is often underexposed in the traditional art world. Shining a spotlight on fiber art created in the Northwest, BAM Biennial 2012: High Fiber Diet celebrates both the region’s rich traditions as well as new expressions, where concepts of art and craft merge.”
