Quake! : Unexpected Patterns
Quake!: Unexpected Patterns
An exhibition by members of the ArtCloth Network
This exhibition was juried by Miriam Nathan-Roberts in 2009

Juror's Statement

Unexpected Patterns: Quake! explores a variety of interpretations on cloth. This
theme was interpreted widely, but most entrants focused on an abrupt change of
some sort. The major differences in thought seemed to be the focus on either the
destructive nature of change or the transformative growth after change. Entrants
explored these concepts in a context of literal meaning, as in Seismic Waves or
Richter, as well as socially, politically, and metaphorically. Ingenuity was evident in
the ways participants improvised alterations to the cloth.

Visitors to the gallery have an opportunity to consider how individuals, all with the
starting point of white cloth and the word “Quake,” can develop a multiplicity of
concepts and images. The exhibit also highlights how the versatility and beauty of
cloth, combined with an infinite number of ways to alter it, has expressive power as
an artistic medium. Mastery of the medium and artistic vision shown in Katherine
Sylvan’s Before and After are exemplary of textile arts at their finest
