'The Power of Ten' fills White Gallery
The Power of Ten opens Dec. 1 at the White Gallery at St. Paul’s Church, with an artists’ reception planned for Dec. 6.
The exhibition features the work of 10 talented Northeast Ohio fiber artists—Deb Berkebile, Joann Giordano, Ann Kmieck, Barb Lind, Ruta Marino, Amy Reed, Sandy Shelenberger, Mary Ann Tipple, Kathleen Vanmeter, and Martha Young.
“We call ourselves ‘The Tens’ because there are 10 of us . . . who have been meeting once a month for years,” explained Young. “Through those years we have supported and guided each other through the joys and sorrows of our lives.”
The members also offer one another constructive criticism on work in progress, advice on useful techniques, and updates on exhibits to enter and to view.
Since its inception, some members have come and some have gone. Each comes to fiber arts with a vision formed by her own background and experience. The resulting artwork is unique to each member of The Tens.
The community is invited to view this exhibition and attend the Dec. 6 artists’ reception, 5–7 p.m. The nonprofit gallery is located at the church, at 2747 Fairmount Blvd.
