“Explorations in Silk”
Featuring artists with the San Diego Silk Guild
On exhibit November 1 – November 27
About 25 years ago, four silk artists came together in San Diego to promote their art form through exhibits, workshops, and community outreach. Since that time, the San Diego Silk Guild has grown to over 35 members who fulfill this mission with their passion for silk painting. Painting on silk is a unique art form that offers unlimited pathways to artistic expression. Wall hangings, quilted pieces, wax batiks, Japanese shibori, collage and multimedia work, three-dimensional pieces, painting, and beautiful wearables all reflect the variety of techniques used by silk artists. Using high quality silk fabric and dyes specially formulated for this material, silk artists find endless possibilities in transforming a white canvas into the finished work of art imagined by its creator. The artists of the San Diego Silk Guild demonstrate this diversity in silk art with each offering a personal variation of technique that reflects the artist’s unique vision.
The San Diego Silk Guild is a chapter of Silk Painters International.
