A Word from Jane
This exhibition represents three years of dedicated study on the part of the participants. The Art Cloth Mastery Program in which they were enrolled, required five week long sessions in my San Antonio studio, in addition to assignments which were addressed during the interim periods.
The selected participants study surface design processes on cloth, and also color, design and the articulation of a personal visual language.
This exhibition is a sampling of the finest work being presented by students of surface design today. Each of these artists will continue to generate studio work for exhibition after the program is completed. A few may choose to extend their circle of influence by teaching. Others may decide to write a book or produce some other lasting contribution to the field. The future is rich with possibility. It has been my great pleasure to accompany them on this exciting path. I congratulate each on the efforts of the past two and a half years.
