Art Cloth Network comes to Krempp Gallery

By Herald Staff

JASPER — The Krempp Gallery at the Jasper Arts Center announced Tuesday that fiber artwork from Art Cloth Network will be on display in the local space Oct. 1-30.

An opening reception will not be held due to COVID-19.

The Art Cloth Network is a group of 27 professional artists from the US and Canada who have come together with a common goal — to promote the medium of fiber as an art form and share it with others.

The group defines art cloth as cloth transformed by adding or subtracting color, line, shape, texture, value or fiber to create a compelling surface.

Each member brings a personal vision and sensibility to his or her cloth. The group was formed to provide a support forum, as well as exhibition opportunities for its members and to promote an appreciation of art cloth in the broader community.

Art Cloth Network meets annually in a different city where they conduct business — but the highlight is always days of viewing each others’ artwork. There are regional get-togethers and special interest pods, as well.

The group puts on frequent exhibits at museums and galleries throughout North America. More information about the group can be found at artclothnetwork.com.

The Krempp Gallery, located in the Jasper Arts Center adjacent to the Vincennes University Jasper campus, is open to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. School groups, clubs and students are welcome. Admission is free.

The Arts Center can be reached at 482-3070. It is managed by Jasper Community Arts, a department of the City of Jasper.

JCA is supported by the Friends of the Arts, Inc., the Indiana Arts Commission through its regional partner the Vanderburgh Community Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.
