REGISTRATION IS NOT REQUIRED —just drop in and pay at the door ($12/$10 ACP members). View more information or register.

Every Fiber of My Being

Every Fiber of My Being presents the work of seven artists: Maira Kalman, Amy Meissner, Cassie Jones, Diana Weymar, Caroline Lathan-Stiefel, Danielle Hogan and Katie Truk. This group exhibition was curated by 2016 Spring Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence Diana Weymar. What inspires these seven artists varies, but they share a common use and appreciation of textile and modern embroidery.


From Diana Weymar’s Curator Statement:
“This show explores the use of textile as a second skin – embodying past memories and experiences to embrace and express a deeper sense of self. Stitching, or drawing with thread, is a practice that imprints the movement of the hands while thoughts unfold. When the hands are occupied, the mind is open to both the external qualities of textile but also the inner knowledge of the artist. Every Fiber of My Being, a group exhibition, celebrates both simple materials and complex ideas. When looking at handmade objects, the viewer often wonders, ‘How long did it take to make that?’ The answer I give is that it takes a lifetime. This kind of work comes from a deep sense of wonder, history, caring, joy, community, loss and transformation.”
