Tie Up, Draw Down at the Center for Craft Creativity and Design

My work has been included in this exhibition currently on view in Asheville, NC until Saturday, September 2, 2017.

I will be giving an artist talk Thursday, August 3, 6:30 pm so please come if you are in the area! 

90% of weaving happens before thread ever touches the loom. Indeed, the accumulation of warp over weft is only one of many actions, including drafting/design, winding, measuring, looping, counting, dyeing, knotting, setting tension, and others. These actions formed the inspiration and starting point for this exhibition.

Tie Up, Draw Down explores weaving as a source for experimentation across media, genres, concept, and scale. Of the fifteen contemporary artists included in this exhibition, many hybridize weaving technologies, weave “the wrong way,” or adapt and innovate weaving processes to encompass new media. Others do not weave at all, but find a rich avenue of inquiry within aspects or stages of weaving’s complex field.

Artists include: Polly ApfelbaumJoell BaxterJen BervinFrancesca CaponeLiz CollinsMarianne FairbanksDel HarrowSheila HicksLoVidJohn Paul MorabitoDanielle MysliwiecMeghan PriceMolly SmithLaurel Sparks, and Margo Wolowiec.

Tie Up, Draw Down is curated by The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design’s (CCCD) 2017 Curatorial Fellows Natalie Campbell and Carissa Carman and organized by CCCD.
