FW Front Gallery in Asheville, NC, Features Works by Barbara Sokolowski and Teri Friday

FW Front Gallery at Woolworth Walk in Asheville, NC, will present the exhibit, Creation, featuring works in fiber by Barbara Sokolowski and ceramic works by Teri Friday, on view from Mar. 1 - 30, 2012. A reception will be held on Mar. 2, from 4-6pm.

Barbara Sokolowski creates one of a kind fabric art designs. Many are displayed in custom frames made by her husband Jim while others hang alone. She also enjoys making hand towels with fabric embellishments as well as large intricate quilts. The pieces are all- American fabric art creations that will complement any home.

Potter Teri Friday enjoys carving on the surface of her pots, a procedure know as sgraffito, to create design and texture on the pot’s surface. She was influenced initially by the carved pottery of the Navajo. Since then her surface design has evolved to include floral and geometric patterns painted on the surface and enhanced by the contrast of the carved surface. All of the pots are functional and can be put in the dishwasher, microwave, and even in the oven if the pots are allowed to heat slowly with the oven.

Friday says “Some of the most intimate moments we spend with each other are done while sharing food and drink. I strive to make beautiful functional pieces that I hope enrich the lives of the user and bring a bit of celebration to each occasion of their use.”
