A new Bacon Gallery exhibition has opened at the Erie Art Museum. The show, a traveling textile exhibit called “Earth Stories,” contains pieces from “24 contemporary international fiber artists,” according to a press release from the museum.

Curated by Leni Levenson Wiener, of Studio Art Quilt Associates, and juried by Dr. Carolyn L. Mazloomi, each piece is inspired by environmental issues. Techniques including painting, photo transfer, applique and patchwork were used in the design of each part of the exhibition to tell “stories of people and projects working to protect and restore natural lands and endangered species, increased sustainability through new approaches to agriculture and energy consumption, and otherwise improve the planet we live in,” according to the release.

For more information, contact Jill Kambs at jill@erieartmuseum.org or (814) 459-5477. “Earth Stories” is open until June 11.
