REDEFINING FELT with Janice Arnold from Ashland Bay

Janice Arnold takes handmade FELT to extremes. The daughter of a cartographer, she learned scale as a second sense. Her work ranges from intricately executed pieces to elaborate environments in refined textures from luminous to dense using raw fibers. Arnold is artist in a league of her own. Much of my work is designed around the nomadic principle of mobility. Individual elements find new life as mutable installations in new spaces. For the Festival Exhibition “ On the Fringe” I am installing one element of a much larger installation titled CHROMA Passage which was created in 2010 for the Grand Rapids Art Museum in Grand Rapids Michigan. Many of the raw fibers for this piece came from Ashland Bay!
