Off the chART -- Fiber Art

Friday, May 29, 2015

As the annual May Impressionist and Contemporary auctions in New York come to a record-breaking close, I wanted to highlight a genre that has interested me recently -- Fiber Art. There is something about the vivid colors and textures that I keep coming back to. I am amazed at how these artists can transform simple threads into voluminous sculptural pieces.  Check out some of these finds you can grab for under a $179.4 million!

  1. As an aspiring artist myself, I always look for places where I can showcase my talent to the world and hopefully even make some money out of this. By searching for such opportunities on the internet I managed to come across It's a great place where you can really work on your talent and if you are good enough sell your arts.
