Rock Paper Scissors

OPENING Nov 21 2020

Opening on November 21, 2020, this fascinating fiber art exhibition presents contemporary textiles and mixed-media works created by artists from New Image, an all-female group of active studio artists from Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, DC, who work primarily with cloth, paper, and alternative materials. Inspired by the natural landscape of the Shenandoah Valley and the materials used by New Image artists, Rock, Paper, Scissors presents a wide range of art, from standard quilts to three-dimensional works. All works will be on first-time public view at the MSV. On view until June 20, 2021. Rock, Paper, Scissors is organized and curated by New Image artist and Shenandoah Valley resident Trudi Van Dyke.
