Next Show:

"Etudes" at the Madison Overture Center - Gallery I - Madison, Wisconsin, USA

Tuesday, December 12, 2017 through Sunday, March 4, 2018

Reception: FRI, JAN 12, 6 PM – 8 PM | Promenade Lounge

Étude is French for a study. In music, an étude is a composition that emphasizes a certain technique. It compels a musician to focus on and become skilled in this technique. Over time, étude work provides the musician with intense technical practice—and in time, mastery—in selected areas, opening themselves up to the possibilities of full creativity with their chosen instrument.

MCFA members created fiber art that visually expresses their use of études—studies—significant to them. Their studies are the basis for this intriguing exhibit. The artists pushed the envelope of their technical expertise and expanded the possibilities for their creative endeavors.

While the art is personal in nature, attendees will be engaged by the unexpected work that resulted from these études. The resulting images and themes impacted the artists’ lives while at the same time improved the fiber artists’ virtuosity in their chosen mediums.
