About the Exhibition

On the Bias explores the various meanings of "bias". The concept of bias applies to society, politics, the environment, and interactions with people. It can also be a play on words, which, for textile artists, has a special meaning. When fabric is cut “on the bias” diagonally across the grain, it is more fluid and has greater flexibility and drapability. Bias-cut edges don’t fray. Bias is a part of life.


About The Fibre Art Network (FAN)
