12 Voices From One Exhibit

Twelve Voices from One
2010 Art Cloth Mastery Program Exhibition
Students of Jane Dunnewold’s Art Cloth Mastery Program will exhibit at San Antonio’s Radius Gallery from March 29 through May 31, 2012.  Open to the public, a reception will be on Thursday, March 29, from 5:30pm – 7:30pm.  
Based in San Antonio, Jane Dunnewold is a world renowned, award winning mixed media artist. An author of books and DVD’s related to the subject of art cloth, Dunnewold exhibits and conducts workshops domestically and internationally. 
The twelve exhibiting students from around the world studied the elements of design, dyeing textiles, surface manipulation and mixed media applications as they honed their individual styles. Five week long studio sessions are supplemented with rigorous interim assignments during the two-and-a-half-year endeavor. The exhibition is the culmination of the participants’ efforts.
Designed and implemented by instructor/artist Jane Dunnewold, the Art Cloth Mastery Program is unique in its ability to provide advanced education in contemporary surface design practices. The program is enrolled each year from a roster of applicants who must provide evidence of previous experience and serious intent, and is limited to twelve students per term. 
Each participating artist will present a short lecture on the development of her work. Presentations will showcase a range of inspiration and technique. Sessions will be scheduled on Tuesday, March 27, and Wednesday, March 28, at a time to be announced. Free and open to the public. 
The Radius is located at 106 Auditorium Circle in downtown San Antonio.  The gallery is open from 8:30am – 4:30pm Monday – Friday.
