Material Meaning Catalogue Launch - October 2019

A big enormous thank you to Brittany Wittman McLaughlin for the design of this beautiful catalogue and to Madison Metro from Craft in America, who put in extra hours photographing these works in the gallery. Now the exhibit can live on in your own library! You can read more about it and purchase the catalogue through The Weaving Workshop, HERE.

The Tactile Experience - September 2019

I introduced a new workshop at the Craft in America Center as part of the exhibit Material Meaning: A Living Legacy of Anni Albers. Participants in Materiality: The Tactile Experience  engaged in playful explorations of simple everyday materials (paper, cardboard, foil, wire, etc.) to revitalize their sense of touch. I'll teach a similiar workshop  at the Palm Springs Art Museum in February. You can read more about the upcoming workshop HERE.

Material Meaning in the LA Times - August 2019

Just pinch me! The show I curated is referred to in this August review by Los Angeles Times art critic Leah Ollman as "steeped in reverence and spiked with formal ingenuity"and called no less earnest than the recent Albers retrospective at the Tate Modern in London.  Plus the exhibit was a featured listing in the Times Calendar section! So very exciting...  Check out the on-line version HERE.

Material Meaning - July 2019

After many many months of preparation, the show I curated opened at the Craft in America Center in Los Angeles on July 13. Several of the artists were at the opening and spoke about their work, and Brittany Wittman McLaughlin presented a workshop the morning of the opening. It was a great day! July2019-1

Leno Extravaganza - June 2019

An eager gathering of fiber folk assembled at ARTSgarage on June 30 to learn all about leno weaving (twisted warp threads)  taught by our locally based leno expert, Deanna Deeds. What a great day of backyard learning.
