Transcendent Silk… Beyond the Ordinary  showcases 82 silk paintings by 52 national and international artists. The exhibition was created in conjunction with the Silk Painter International’s (SPIN) biennial conference “Transcendent Silk… Beyond the Ordinary” being held at Arrowmont October 4-13, 2018.  Featuring works made by SPIN members, the exhibit features a dynamic group of silk paintings, sculptures and installations that explore a variety of themes and subjects. “SPIN is an international organization of silk artists, painters, practitioners and educators. Our goal is to establish silk painting as a recognized art form by encouraging and promoting the collecting, displaying and production of silk art at the highest level.” – SPIN.
