Fiber Exhibit by Dottie Gantt at Lexington County Library

Fiber artist Dottie Gantt will is the featured solo artist at the main branch of the Lexington County Library in Lexington, SC, from Nov. 1 - 30, 2000.

Gantt's award winning fiber wall hangings have been juried and exhibited in museums, art galleries, and other venues in South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia. A number of her works are in private collections in Illinois, Minnesota, Arizona, and North and South Carolina.

Gantt offers the following about her work: "I enjoy working spontaneously, quite often ending up with a piece that is nothing like what I had planned to do. I let the fabric textures, color, design, and visual illusions create images expressing emotions/feeling, experiences, and interpretations of my world. With each piece, I try to challenge myself, stretch, take risks, experiment, and develop my creativity as a fiber artist. I enjoy taking thread, fabric, embellishments and an idea, ending up with a work that is different from anything else ever created; something that's part of me. It is my hope that viewers of my work will find something that pleases, challenges, or excites them."
