From Confrontation to Catharsis: Fall 2021 EIP, Out Now!
October 18, 2021
Surface Design Association is excited to announce From Confrontation to Catharsis: SDA International Exhibition in Print, our Summer 2021 edition of Surface Design Journal. Our sixth annual EIP has both a subtlety and a boldness in its award winners and featured artists, who address the theme of “Confrontation through Catharsis.” This year we had the privilege of welcoming Keidra Daniels Navaroli, a frequent SDJ contributor and former assistant director and curator of the Ruth Funk Center for Textile Arts at Florida Institute of Technology (Florida Tech), as guest juror. Navaroli asks an important question of us when considering this year’s theme, “how can fiber art help to mend our connection to one another and the world at large?”
Here’s a preview of what you’ll discover:
Surface Design Award: Cari Clement
Fiber Reinterpreted Award: Erin Fletcher
Guest Juror Award: Linda Anderson
Collaboration And Community Award: Danielle Hatch
Material Exploration Award: Amy Deal
Emerging Artist Award: Cecilia Mckinnon
Modern Meets Traditional Award: Drew Mckevitt
The EIP also highlights 24 Featured Artists: Christine A. Holtz, Dong Kyu Kim, Elizabeth Alexander, Fuzzy Mall, Kristin Nalesnik, Susan Zimmerman, Holly Cole, H. Mitsu Shimabukuro, Rosemary Burd, Elizabeth Fram, Caryl Gaubatz, Jess Jones, Bobbi Meier, Michael Sylvan Robinson, Kristy Deetz, Kate Kretz, Ann Morton, Martha Shade, Adrienne Sloane, Naomi Spinak, Christine Aaron, Kristina Daukintyte Aas, Terumi Saito, and Holly Wong.
