Branch Gallery is pleased to announce their upcoming exhibition, “Fiber Trails,” featuring work by Los Angeles fiber artist, Cameron Taylor-Brown. Fiber Trails features several series of artwork inspired by her journeys and includes Red Offerings (Bhutan), Majestic Stone (Peruvian Highlands), Colors of Gujarat (India) and LAVAfolds (Galapagos Islands, Ecuador). Taylor-Brown’s creative expression encompasses mixed media fiber collage, weaving and site-specific installation.
“Fiber Trails celebrates the rich heritage and international language of textiles. Where there are people there is cloth. When I travel, I seek out textiles and their makers and am inspired by the diverse cultures and varied landscapes I encounter.” – Cameron Taylor-Brown
A Fiber Trails presentation is scheduled for Saturday, October 21 at 2pm, where Cameron will share images of landscapes, people and their traditional textiles and discuss how her travels influence her artwork. A Fiber Trails workshop will be offered on October 28 from 10AM- 5PM. Participants will create a knitted, crocheted or woven design inspired by one of Cameron’s images or an image from their own journey. Their
journey could be as far away as China or as close as their own backyard! Event details can be found online at www.theknittingtreela.com/classes.
