Intimacy + Materiality: Opening Reception 1/22/16 - 4/10/16

Intimacy + Materiality explores material and pronounces the handmade or methods of making through the lens of contemporary studio, social, and design practices. Many of the ten artists come with expertise in traditional making techniques and their concepts - from costume to crochet, screen print to stitch - while others combine disparate materials to produce sculptural objects and collage. The work in this exhibition finds its roots in material that we wrap ourselves in daily in the most intimate ways - from clothing to bedding - and departs. The artists take inspiration from the processes and techniques used from fashion to hardcore craft to create both gorgeously rich and politically enticing sculptural and two-dimensional works. From simplicity to excess, each explores their intimate environments and translates into contemporary works, often citing the historic tradition of technique through concept or execution. Opening Reception: 22 January 6:00 - 8:00pm Artist Talks: 22 January 6:30pm with Sarah Amos & Liz Collins
