The Fiberworks 2013 art show settles itself nicely into the Hardesty Arts Center for its first appearance at the new arts venue, 101 E. Archer St., in Tulsa’s Brady Arts District. The Fiber Artists of Oklahoma exhibits works submitted for this 35th annual juried show in a variety of traditional folk media including basketry, beading, paper, knitting, weaving, felting, and, yes, needlepoint. These creations (both functional and not) are certain to surprise and even startle with their artists’ eloquent vision and skillful manipulation of materials. No doubt, the show will be an education for some of its viewers, but artists, too, can learn from it. Fiberworks 2013 juror Barbara Shapiro, a textile artist from San Francisco, will offer a workshop July 14-16. Show will open Saturday, July 12, and remain on display through Aug. 23.
