Fuller Craft Museum, New England’s home for contemporary craft presents Fresh Fiber Revisited: Work by Emerging Textile Artists from RISD, UMass-Dartmouth, and MassArt Five Years Later, this exhibition will run January 7 – April 22, 2012.

Fuller Craft welcomes back students from RISD, UMass-Dartmouth, and MassArt for an opportunity to exhibit their work in our Community Gallery. The exhibition brings back together fiber and textile design programs from three prominent universities in Eastern Massachusetts and Rhode Island, allowing visitors to experience the wide range of possibilities within the field of fiber art.

Each program brings its own specialty to the exhibition. Students from Rhode Island School of Design focus on textile design in their course of study, examining the fabrics in industry and hand production. The students in the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth Fibers program are encouraged to go beyond the traditional realm of fiber as material, combining many elements into a final piece, which is often sculptural or installation based. The Fiber Department at Massachusetts College of Art fellow emphasizes mastery of techniques and exploration of concepts.

Fuller Craft Museum, New England’s only museum of contemporary craft, is dedicated to the objects, ideas, and insight that inspire both patrons and artists to explore life through the art of contemporary craft. Fuller Craft Museum is located at 455 Oak St. in Brockton, Mass. The Museum is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., with free admission for all Wednesdays from 5:00 – 9:00 p.m. Admission is $8 adults, $5 seniors and students, free for members and children 12 and under.
