Whidbey Island Surface Design is a group of visual artists living and working on Whidbey Island in Puget Sound, Washington State. Though they work in many different media, techniques, and visual traditions, they share a fascination and on-going interest in surface design, the creative exploration of fiber, fabric and mixed media. WISD members create wall hangings, contemporary quilts, hand-made books, encaustic images, fiber art sculptures, basketry and wearable art. They are weavers, mixed-media artists, photographers, dye artists, sewers, beaders, painters and more. Sharing a variety of artistic interests and techniques enriches their experience.

Birds of a Fiber
Group Curated Show
January 23 - March 1, 2020

This is the third year that the Museum has presented an open call exhibit, "Birds of a Fiber." This year's exhibit is curated by our new Curator, Jenny Walker, and includes some fabulous pieces from across the country!
This exhibit is done to compliment the La Conner Birding Showcase event, Saturday, January 25, and the Skagit County's Birds of Winter Experience held the month of February.
Our response to this call for entries has significantly grown each year we've done it, becoming an increasingly popular exhibit with artists and visitors alike. It highlights quilts of all different types and designs, needlework and 3D pieces - all bird-related themed pieces!
