For me, fiber art is a deep dive into the pre-modern, and sometimes even pre-literate, world of basic making and doing. For a man in the modern world, absorbing oneself in crochet and needlework might seem necessarily to be a deep dive into issues of gender roles and social expectations, but nothing in the making process itself welcomes that kind of intellectual ferment---just the opposite! A still mind absorbed in precise, rhythmic motions of the hands, loop after loop, stitch after stitch, connection after connection... What does argument produce?

    The Gainesville Fine Arts Association, Inc. (GFAA) has fostered and encouraged the study of the visual arts through every medium since 1923.
