A collection of innovative contemporary fiber art and art quilts is on display in a two-month exhibit at the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.

Titled “Off Kilter,” the show is being mounted in conjunction with the Cutting Edge Fiber Arts Group and will be on view through Jan. 31.

The Cutting Edge Fiber Arts Group is composed of 15 Central Coast artists working with cloth and the quilt form to produce contemporary fiber art, a Museum of Art spokeswoman said.

Meeting monthly, the group experiments with hand dyeing, fabric painting, creative embellishment and other innovative techniques.

“Fabric, thread and other fibrous materials serve both as canvas and palette to create works of fine art,” the spokeswoman said. “By adding dimension, texture and personal interpretation to the traditional expression of the quilt, CEFAG strives to create individual, imaginative and contemporary fiber art and art quilts.”

The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art at 1010 Broad St., on the west end of San Luis Obispo Mission Plaza, is open from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until Jan. 1, then will be closed Tuesdays through July 4.
