Ixchel Suárez is a tapestry artist in Toronto.
Tapestry is a traditional medium that after 30 years of experience has drawn me to explore the vision of applying it into different ways. My formal training of Design, Photography and Textiles in Mexico,my country of origin, gave me firm basis to understand the traditional structures of fibre and weaving. The influence I experienced while being introduced to the Eastern European Polish textile art and now my immersion into a diverse culture such as Canada has widened my spectrum of possibilities to explore with non-conventional materials. My knowledge in photography has been a very important support and tool for creating my textile art. Through the lens I capture images of nature such as textures, reflections, surfaces. These images are then transformed into fibre language with natural and synthetic fibres. Once the images are interpreted through a textile form, they become my second skin. Nature and texture as my great inspiration; Weaving as a metaphor of fertility, connection, tissue, skin. All as a fractal of nature...they all connect us all into this ever-changing world.
New art fairs are necessary for the evolution of the art fair business because artists need new markets and even reliable shows sometimes don't continue to thrive.
We speak with 4 show directors who are developing events for their communities:
Rae Marie Schneider and Kim House, St. John's River Festival of the Arts in Sanford, FL, had solid community participation at their inaugural show in 2012. They'll talk about how they did it and their plans for 2013. Dennis Gorg, a 10 year event organizer who has a new show in June in St. Louis, MO, MidTown Taste ART FAIR. We'll learn how an experienced producer leverages his skills for a new event. Tim Reilly, is the director of The Cotton South Fine Art Festival in Madison, GA, debuting in September 2013. Still in the throes of filling his show, raising money and working with sponsors, we'll hear how a new director makes his plans. This show will be full of information for everyone thinking of starting a show with ideas for new show directors and will fill in the nuts and bolts of show development for artists as well who wonder where their application and booth fees go.
Established event promoters will enjoy the creative ideas that these people pull together to make their events a success for everyone involved.
