Considering January


Jonathan Parker | SC #305 | 2023 | acrylic on sewn canvas | 14 x 11 inches


Exhibition Dates: January 20 – February 17, 2024
Reception: Saturday, January 20th from 3:30 pm – 6:30 pm

This ensemble exhibition is a jubilant celebration of the rich language of textile art. The twelve artists in this show maneuver fabric, fibers, and thread into objects and structures that rollick, swaddle, sag, and by any means necessary, call attention to the actuality of the material world. Whether woven, twisted, stitched, wrapped, or appliqued the works engender speculations on time, myth, and sensuality. They reframe, cancel, and blur historical implications of cloth with lavish physicality. The works’ audacious generosity of touch and gesture invite creative liberation as critical grist for the new year.
