Ties That Bind: Collage & Fibre Art Exhibition Coming Soon!

Hello! As I type this I’m crazy busy preparing for my exhibition/opening next week with artist Krystyna Sadej. I’ve spent the last month and a half preparing 10 new pieces for the show. I’m putting the finishing touches on one last piece and the rest of the work has been photographed and is in the midst of being framed. Krystyna and I recently scoped out the gallery to determine how we will configure the space. Gallery 112 has moveable walls and this is the first time we’ve ever shown in a space where we decide where the walls will be placed! It’s quite cool and challenging. As you may remember, Krystyna is a big time recycler; her fibre pieces are made out of the most amazing things like VCR tape, wrapping paper ribbons, plastic shopping, garbage bags and even human hair! She weaves these elements into elegant fashion wear and stunning, sparkling tapestries. Her work is definitely a must see. Drawing on each other’s imaginative worlds a number of our pieces were inspired by the earthly, intergalactic and celestial spheres. Seeing each other’s works unfold over time has been a truly magical and eye-opening experience for both of us. We are so proud of the pieces we have to share with you!

We would love to see you at the opening on Friday, April 24, 2015, 6-9 pm. If you can’t make it, the exhibition will be held for two months (April 20 to July 24, 2015), so there’s still plenty of time to see it. For you out-of-towners, I’ll be sharing photos of the opening and new works on my blog and portfolio pages so you won’t miss out on anything. Below are further details about the show…
