Women Who Run with Scissors and the Village of Egg Harbor’s Public Arts Initiative are excited to announce “Natural Door,” fiber art exhibit on display at the Kress Pavilion starting June 1.
“Natural Door” includes 15 pieces inspired by the abundance of natural beauty in Door County. The fiber art that members created had to be: no more than 30 inches wide; be able to be hung on the wall; and be a literal, figurative or abstract interpretation of the natural beauty and environmental wonders of Door County.
The exhibition comes from Women Who Run with Scissors a Green Bay Fiber Art Group founded in 1997. According to their mission statement, “Our interests are in creating original pieces of fiber art and enjoying the thread of weirdness that binds us all together. Those same irreverent qualities that got us into trouble in grade school are now finally working to our advantage as we blend our personal visions with the exploration of contemporary surface design techniques.”
On June 9, the Public Arts Initiative of the Village of Egg Harbor will host an opening reception to celebrate the installation and the Women Who Run with Scissors. Refreshments provided.
Thursday, June 9 – 4-7pm
This exhibition will remain on display until September 30, 2022.
If you believe that quilts are simply blankets that are meant to be thrown over your bed, think again. Women Who Run with Scissors challenged the traditional purpose of a quilt and turned their hobby into creative artwork.
About Women Who Run with Scissors: Women Who Run with Scissors is a Fiber Art group founded in 1997 based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. Their common interests are in creating original pieces of ﬁber art and enjoying the thread of weirdness that binds them all together. Those same irreverent qualities that got them into trouble in grade school are now ﬁnally working to their advantage as they blend their personal visions with the exploration of contemporary surface design techniques.
The artist group is comprised of 15 women who are ﬁrst and foremost interested in having fun and making art. The order of importance ﬂips back and forth, and many of the artists experiment with a variety of art forms and activities. Their creativity and humor shine through the pieces they create.
