Wave of Change, a fiber sculpture created by artist Barbara Riegel Bend, seems to be in motion, turning stiff metal zippers and fabric into something fluid and organic. It was one of many pieces on display in the 50th Annual Northern Lights Juried Arts Exhibition at White Bear Center for the Arts. In a comment for the show, Riegel Bend describes her artistic process: “The viewer can find vintage neckties, zippers, hair clips, guitar strings and classic fabrics,” she says. “I stitch them together, creating movement and continuity. The viewer discovers the ‘out of place’ pieces, remembering something from their past.”
