Artificial Light is coming down on August 13th. See it in Anderson Park while you can!
Shed light on the place where Redmond took root a century ago with fiber artist Suzanne Tidwell. Tidwell asks us to consider the art and craft of daily life by knitting her bright and whimsical yarn installation, Artificial Light, in historic Anderson Park. Free to view in the park from March 8th to August 13th. This project is a part of the Redmond Arts Season.

Suzanne Tidwell is an up-and-coming fiber artist from Sammamish.
When she sees a length of material or a ball of yarn, she instantly knows what it should be. For Suzanne, art is the realization of the many ideas she sees in her head. These ideas evolve from images that come to me as bright flashes of thought - occasionally as a full picture, sometimes just a series of elements - often just a blur. Suzanne manipulates these pictures over and over in her mind, rearranging, re-ordering, adding and subtracting elements until her idea is clear enough to become something real.
