The Surface Design Association of Washington State’s exhibition, Fiber Fusion, is a celebration of textiles and surface design techniques.

This traveling exhibition showcases the depth and breadth of the surface designer’s work in Washington state and includes original, innovative 2D and 3D artworks using handmade felt, paper, fabric, clothing and basket-making materials, among others.

To these surfaces, designers dye, paint, print, stitch, bead and otherwise enhance or embellish. More than the methods, surface designers are interested in the unlimited options for experimenting with color, texture and design.

Eastside chapter members whose work has been accepted into the exhibit include Christina Fairley Erickson, Gale Whitney, Crystal A. Edwards, Maura Donegan and Rebecca Wachtman.

The exhibition runs through Jan. 15 at VALA Art Center, 7325 166th Ave. NE, Redmond.
