THREE WALLS AIR 9 Final Exhibition
The Textile Arts Center is pleased to present Three Walls, the culminating exhibition of the 9th cycle of Artists in Residence.
During the nine months residency, the eight artists worked alone, together. Their studios comprised only 3 walls; the lack of a fourth wall necessitated that their practices be shared and that their work inspired and conversed with each other.
Sculptural eyes seem to read hidden hand woven messages; a quilt designed to be worn meets a fiber depiction of a body, both crafted to protect; garments that research the dynamic relationship between maker/wearer and explore the complexities of function/value; and found images, layered and transformed, turn into paintings, while found materials are repurposed into sculptures.
The artists in Three Walls come from a range of creative backgrounds, and the collective body of work featured reflects this variety of experience. However there’s a sense of unity. An empathetic identification. In concept, form, and process, they are companions.
Artists in Three Walls are Jamie Boyle, Rhonda Khalifeh, Junyu Li, Lily Moebes, Meghan O'Sullivan, Cory Siegler, Hannah Whelan and Chang Yuchen.
OPENING RECEPTION: September 20, 6-9pm
ARTIST TALK: September 23, 7pm
