When it comes to the arts, Fox Crossing resident Laurie Fagen has a widfely varied resume.

Actress, novelist and mixed media artist are all areas where Fagen has a long list of accomplishments.

Starting today, a piece of her fiber art can be seen in the “All Art Arizona” show at Art Intersection, 207 N. Gilbert Rd., Suite 201, Gilbert.

Fagen will be displaying a piece from her fiber art collection — a wall art quilt replicating a scene from Glacier National Park.

“The image was transferred to fabric, then heavily quilted with a few miles of thread,” Fagen said. “It’s a serene landscape of the mountains, but we were surprised how little glacial snow was left.”

Fagen, who also designs jewelry and writes crime fiction mysteries, is the former publisher of the SanTan Sun News. She and her late husband, Geoff Hancock, founded the paper.

Her piece at Art Intersection started with a photograph taken on a family vacation.

Fagen, whose private studio is called Fagen Designs, is an award-winning multi-media fiber artist who designs and creates contemporary fiber art and wearable art. For her jewelry, she works in fine silver and polymer clay.

Her work has been seen in galleries and exhibits in Arizona, California, Iowa and North Carolina.

Fagen also teaches a variety of classes and workshops, and is available to share her classes in surface design embellishment, metal clay, polymer clay and other techniques and projects.

The Art Intersection shows celebrates “the diversity of artwork created by both well-known and emerging artists in Arizona” and opens with a reception for artists and the public from 5-8 p.m. today, June 15, The free exhibition runs through Aug. 3.

The studio has presented a special exhibition on Arizona artists for the last nine years and aims to give exposure to “well-known and emerging artists living in our own back yard.”

It highlights “the breadth and diversity of art created by Arizona artists” in virtually every medium — including sculpture, glass, photography, painting, ceramics, wood, printmaking, mixed media, artist books, and more,” a studio release said.

The opening reception draws artists, art collectors and art lovers from across the state and is one of Art Intersection’s best attended exhibitions of the year.

Visitors also will be able to cast their vote for the Viewer’s Choice Award, which the studio announces at the end of the exhibition.
