I am so excited to be a part of REFUSE/reseen. This show, curated by Warren Seelig is part of the Fiber Philadelphia event. The show is sponsored by Somethings Looming in Reading, Pennsylvania. There will be an opening reception on Saturday, April 14th from 1:00-4:00pm and a closing reception on Saturday June 2nd from 1:00 to 3:00 PM. Here is the write up about the show:
The world has become keenly aware of the way our bloated consumer culture produces tremendous volumes of trash which daily feed the ever growing mountainous landfills.
This exhibit encourages artists working in fiber to become infatuated with the idea of exploring the possibilities of this disposable and disregarded stuff as the basis for this submission. Our challenge for fiber artists everywhere is to take the most ordinary, non-precious and every day materials and to create the most extraordinary. The reuse of every conceivable material is already imbedded in the psyches of many working artists today.
This exhibit will require the use of materials which are not durable and are normally considered ephemeral and short lived.
I have two pieces in the show, including this one, MAZE.
