Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, Features Works by Addelle Sanders
The Charleston Artist Guild in Charleston, SC, will present the exhibit, Vision of Style, featuring works by fiber artist Addelle Sanders in the Guild Gallery2, from Apr. 2 - 30, 2010.
Sanders is renown for brilliant and audacious fiber artworks created from textiles such as fabric, yarns, and various natural and synthetic fibers that evolve into extraordinary pieces. "My artwork represents my vision of style and elegance and the natural beauty of fibers collected from our environment," said Sanders. "In my work I focus on the materials and on the manual labor involved as part of its significance and beauty."
Sanders' art career began 20 years ago when she created charms and fashion accessories using threads and skins as a hobby. The artwork evolved into a vibrant collection of unique works. Sanders uses rich color palettes of silk threads and metallic cords to weave elaborate designs. She is a graduate of Benedict College in Columbia, SC, and New York University with a Masters in Social Work. Sanders resides on James Island, SC.
Sanders' accomplishments include placing 2nd in the 2008 MOJA Juried Art Exhibition, and 3rd in the 2009 Piccolo Spoleto Juried Art Exhibition. She was selected as a participant in the 2009-2010 South Carolina Palmetto Hands Traveling Exhibition. Sanders' artwork was also selected to be in the permanent collection of the Schomberg Center in New York. Other achievements include recognition by The Ellis-Chambers Gallery, International Home Gallery, Terri Logan Gallery, and Essence Music Festival.
"We are delighted to present Addelle Sanders artwork, all of which are beautiful and communicate stories of boldness and savvy,' said Patricia Huff, Board Member of CAG.
