A Cause for Celebration – Twenty Years! Then and Now!

To celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the founding of ArtFiber Saint Louis we’ve decided to show work created early in the process of artistic exploration and to show recent work. It’s a privilege and a treat to share growth and change! Then and Now –

Drew Donnelly Benage worked to perfect hand and machine piecing and applique skills as she began her fiber art journey. In recent years she has been interested in colorwash designs and in surface design techniques such as fabric dyeing, marbling and shibori.
Laura Saunders Kaiser’s early art quilt adventures focused on a “no rules”, sometimes "wonky" approach to traditional blocks with bold color choices that ran afoul of sensible color schemes. Current work explores texture and surface design techniques such as dyeing, painting, heat altering and use of unconventional materials. Birds, nests and text are frequent subject matter.
Deb Lewis explored traditional and applique quilt work for several years before turning to art quilts. She dyes her own fabrics and experiments with a wide variety of surface design techniques. Deb likes to use upcycled cloth and often uses nature, family and humor as themes. She has rediscovered hand embroidery and often uses embroidery in her art work.
Pat Owoc’s earliest fiber work was traditional in nature. Disperse dye, fiber reactive dye, silk screen, stamping, painting and other surface design techniques are the foundation for current work which usually features family stories or botanical themes.

ArtFiber St. Louis, founded in 1996 as Art Quilt Alliance, grew out of the need for a supportive, collaborative organization for a small group of artists in the greater St. Louis, Missouri, area. ArtFiber members explore a range of techniques in the creation of layered stitched constructions and sculptural works. Current members are Drew Donnelly Benage, Laura Saunders Kaiser, Deb Lewis, and Pat Owoc.
