The show features the work of seven artists with each incorporating a textile sensibility through elements of fabric and fabrication.
“Inspired by a rich array of historical textiles, from drapery to quilt, these complex, multipart works contrast our culture’s rampant media consumption with the redemptive nuance of slow work wrought by hand,” said Reni Gower, co-currator.
“Individual works range from delicate illusions to layered constructions to architectural interventions,” she continued, “created from a variety of materials, including oil and acrylic paint, vintage clothing, aluminum screens, wool, silk, plastic, thread, vinyl, burlap, rug-hold, glass, recycled objects and found fabrics. These works interweave sensory pleasure with repetitive process to invoke introspection and reflection.”
Also opening Jan. 13 at the school, 735 W. New York St., is an exhibition of works by first-year photography and intermedia graduate students and a display of works by Indianapolis-based artist Michael Milano.
