Complicated Territory: Exhibition featuring Alex McQuilkin, Erin M. Riley, and Martha Tuttle curated by Bridget Donlon

Alex McQuilkin, Erin M. Riley, and Martha Tuttle create work that delves into the complicated territory of a specific kind of female identity, psychology, and navigation of life. Each artist takes on a contemporary approach to traditionally feminine subjects and forms — interiors, domesticity, self-reflection; florals, pastels, handicraft — to explore and critique this identity. Craft traditions are increasingly embraced by artists who adopt handmade forms, updating them with contemporary concepts and content. Artists Erin M. Riley and Martha Tuttle each take a different approah to fiber-based art and offer unique, fresh perspectives.
