Textile Exhibit at Olive Hyde
by Arathi Satish
Olive Hyde Art Gallery is now showing a Textile Exhibit that was started to recognize the original founder, Miss Olive Hyde. She was known to be a person of foresight who donated property and buildings that now house the Olive Hyde Art Gallery, Olive Hyde Art Center and Studio Arts building to the city of Fremont. Miss Hyde was also an historian, conservationist, musician, teacher and textile art supporter.
As a tribute to Miss Hyde's memory and generous nature, the exhibit is held in recognition of her effort to bring art into the Fremont community. This year's exhibit will depict the work of artists who incorporate fibers as a material or concept.
It is very interesting to see the work of so many artists together. Whether it is the striking color combination in the art of Rose Marie Ginsberg or the "Abandoned Bunker at Pt. Bonita" of Susan Else, that looks too beautiful to be abandoned, or the striking "Infertility Object" of Alexandra Von Burg, these exhibits are a treat for all to behold. The eye-catching quilts of Laura Koehler or the beautiful jacquard weaving of Ruth Tabancay must be seen to be appreciated.
