Arlyne Charlip has explored various forms of fiber, textiles and mixed media arts for 30 years. Her techniques are influenced by a broad spectrum of art education from SFCC Art Program to numerous classes & workshops throughout the U.S.
Ms. Charlip’s work has evolved to focus on an artistic exploration of nature, culture and technology. Through the use of photography, computers, textiles/fibers, collage, painting and mixed media, her images invite the viewer to make a connection with social, collective and spiritual expression. Ms Charlip’s art has been shown at numerous venues: Sebastopol Center for the Arts, Mill Valley Art Fair, Fort Mason Art Center, Napa County Fair, various local art fairs and the SFWA Gallery.
As a member of SFWA in the 80’s and 90’s, Arlyne exhibited wearable art forms, such as woven jewelry and accessories, as an expression of art integration into everyday life.
