Getting to Know the Work of Lindsay Ketterer Gates, a Gifted Fiber Artist Now Showing in Tulsa
On this edition of ST, we speak with Lindsay Ketterer Gates, a Pennsylvania-based fiber artist who creates, as noted at her website, "slightly obsessive mixed-media work [that] springs from a background in and love of fiber techniques combined with a curiosity for all things purchased in bulk. Random industrial materials are combined with tedious hand-manipulated wire looping to mimic, or simply give a nod to, beloved textile accents, patterns, and details." Gates is participating in a two-person show that will open tomorrow at the 108 Contemporary Gallery in the Brady Arts District, in downtown Tulsa; "Overlap: Lindsay Ketterer Gates and Amanda Bradway" will be on view from June 5th through July 26th. Gates tells us about this gorgeous exhibition, and also about the upcoming "FiberWorks 2015" show, which is a juried exhibit organized by Fiber Artists of Oklahoma that likewise opens tomorrow (Friday the 5th). Gates is the Juror for this year's "FiberWorks" show, which we be on view at Living Arts of Tulsa.
