Studio 222 was established in 1999 by Mary Stevens of Waverly, Alabama, with founding members Cindy Reinke and Nancy Morgen. Active membership currently includes eleven fiber artists from Alabama and Georgia who meet once a month in Auburn, AL. The artists of Studio 222 explore, experiment, and enjoy working in fiber and related art forms. Studio 222 provides the structure for a gathering of local artists to share knowledge and skills, and to promote these interests in the community.
Since its inception, Studio 222 has exhibited annually at the Jan Dempsey Community Arts Center. Additional venues have included shows at the Auburn Unitarian Universalist Fellowship; the Anderson Comer Museum in Sylacauga; the Telfair B. Peet Theater and The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Arts on the campus of Auburn University in Auburn, Calloway Gardens in Georgia, and locations in Montgomery, AL.
The artists of Studio 222 produce a wide variety of 2 dimensional fiber artworks and a few 3 dimensional artworks, many of which include fabrics that we have hand dyed or used painting or printmaking techniques which were then cut and quilted or cut and glued or stitched to create the finished piece. We like to experiment with different fibers and materials and try new techniques.
