Underwriting provided in part by Friends of Fiber Art International.

Dark Matter  features the work of Amanda McCavour and Terry M. Boyd, both of whom expressively use fiber to express emotion and push the boundaries of contemporary fiber art. This exhibition explores the more solemn and introverted emotional states, revealing and reveling in a darker side of our everyday consciousness.  

McCavour constructs Black Cloud out of various papers and yarns, creating a dark yet elegant form. The Cloud fills the room, so viewers will be able to interact with the artwork on an intimate level, peeking through it, looking up into it and walking around it.

Paired with McCavour’s Black Cloud is Terry M. Boyd’s aggressive and expressive embroidery. Boyd’s 2-dimensional hand sewn pieces are predominantly mono-chromatic works that explore memory and provoke thoughts of vast spaces and abstract landscapes.
