Material Identity In Colorado

In the exhibition Material Identity, artists and makers are invited to explore the substance of material, paying special attention to their place in the world, either from a focus inward, or how they identify in. The show asks how does materiality represent who we are? Does the material you use dictate who you are as a maker? How does medium speak to who you are as an individual?

EXHIBITION DATES: July 10 – Aug 29, 2020

LOCATION: Artworks Center for Contemporary Art in Loveland Colorado

I have three fiber works in the exhibition

Intertwined

Due to Covid19, Dayton Society of Artists is presenting, Intertwined, a national juried exhibition of fiber arts, online. I am one of 32 fiber artists in the show. The diversity and quality of work is amazing.

Intertwined, officially opens May 1, 2020 at 6pm

“Neue” Mixed Media Fiber 200’x 1/2″ 2020

Making Twilight Off The Bow

I invited friends to my studio to wrap yarn, recycled sari thread, ribbon onto cotton rope. 
5 people imbued their essence and became a part of the rope, as we discussed the trials and tribulations of our hair.
Finding a common denominator amongst us all, HAIR.

Two Weeks in Kenya

I won NOW FRIENDS; Artist Residency, Kenya 2020. 

I have reread the email congratulating me for winning “NOW•FRIENDS ; Artist Residency, Kenya 100 times and it is just now starting to sink in.

I’m going to Kenya in July 2020! Returning to Kenya for the first time since my junior year abroad in 1990. Whoa!

NOW FRIENDS ; Artist Residency, Kenya gives an artist the opportunity to immerse themselves in real communities and obtain authentic experiences. During the 2-week residency artists are encouraged to step out of what they would typically consider their work.

While in Residency, I plan to work with community members on a collaborative project weaving hair from local textiles and found materials. I also plan to visit other artists working in Kenya. Please send artist suggestions.

I look forward to meeting new friends and seeing how my work becomes influenced by my time in Kenya. I can’t wait to go textile and bead shopping.
