Interwoven Stories is a community-based narrative stitching project created and facilitated by Diana Weymar, the Arts Council’s 2016 Artist-in-Residence. More than 100 3-hole fabric pages, stitched with memories, places, and people, will be assembled together for this one time group show.

“It is the nature of socially engaged art to present a project to a community while not knowing how it will be received or executed. It is an open question. The response to this project has exceeded our wildest expectations. Beyond the additional of a final show of all the fabric pages and a catalog book, each page is a gift to the community. They speak to the generosity, diversity, spirit, commitment and creativity of this community.”
-Diana Weymar, Interwoven Stories creator and curator


View the Interwoven Stories exhibition, on view from 10/29 through 11/30, and let the pages speak for themselves. They are, quite simply, works of art that speak to the soul.

It's All Wood


Visit the Solley Theater Lobby Gallery to view works by Sean Carney, on view through 1/14/2017.


As a fine artist I feel the need to touch every medium. I enjoy the elements that construct the artwork and relish in the process. My recent works on wood are done using only wood stain and a Dremel. There has been an obvious progression in my works lately in regards to color and surface. Through experimentation with different types of water based stains I have been able to expand my pallet and texture by leaps and bounds. My paintings look like traditional paintings from a distance, but upon closer inspection you gain a realization that they are not traditional at all. It is that moment of contemplation that drives me to continue my growth and development.
Artist Statement, Sean Carney
