some things looming, a Fiber Philadelphia, 2012 venue, proudly presents refuse/re-seen, a juried international exhibition representing thirty-five artists from nineteen states and two countries. We encouraged artists to become infatuated with the idea of exploring the possibilities of using disposable and disregarded stuff as the basis for their submissions. Challenging fiber artists, we asked them to take these most ordinary, non-precious and every day materials to create the most extraordinary.
Juror: Warren Seelig lives and works in Rockland, Maine. He holds the rank of distinguished visiting professor in the Fibers/Mixed Media program at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia where he teaches, curates and writes on various subjects related to textile, fiber and material studies. He received a B.S. from the Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science and an M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art. Seelig has twice received individual fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and three fellowships from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts.
His work has been included in over 30 major museum exhibitions in the United States, Europe, Japan and Korea with many solo and group exhibitions in museums, universities, and private galleries.
