“On the Fringe” is the theme of a new exhibit organized by members of Connecticut Surface Design Association at the Kershner Gallery of the Fairfield Public Library.

The show will run to Oct. 10, with a reception set for Sept. 12 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The artists will talk at 5:30.

There will also be a trunk show in the gallery Oct. 6 from 6 to 9 p.m., with wearable art, jewelry and small objects for sale.

The Connecticut chapter of the Connecticut Surface Design Association was organized about 18 months ago. Its membership includes artists who work in traditional styles and those whose work is cutting edge, according to the publicity for the exhibit. Some weave, felt, quilt, dye, sculpt, embroider, knit, crotchet, make handmade paper and baskets. These artists use silk, wool, yarns, ribbons, beads, buttons, paints, dyes, teabags, objects found in nature, rusted items, flea market finds, recycled materials, Q-tips and other materials.
