The Contemporary Fiber: Breaking Tradition exhibit opens April 11 through May 11, at the Lore Degenstein Gallery, Susquehanna University. It showcases the varied styles and approaches of ten prominent fiber artists—Beth Carney, Linda Colsh, Jane Dunnewold, Valerie Goodwin, Meredith Grimsley, Kate Pasquini-Masopust, Mary Pal, Susan Shie, Kate Themel and Paula Swett.
