Interwoven Stories

View a selection of 20 pages from Interwoven Stories, a community stitching project created by 2016 Artist-in-Residence Diana Weymar. More than 200 3-hole fabric pages, stitched with memories, places, and people, were created by Interwoven Stories participants, speaking to the generosity, diversity, spirit, commitment and creativity of this community.

Interwoven Stories Update: Pages from The University of Puget Sound and the Arts Council of Princeton collections currently on exhibit: The Municipal Hall of Princeton, Arts Council of Princeton, The Zen Hospice Project (San Francisco), and Bogota, Colombia (Dec.) with Build Peace 2017. Opening May 12, 2018, the Arts Council of Princeton’s Taplin Gallery, pages from all collections on exhibit for one month. The Nantucket Atheneum and Artists Association of Nantucket will exhibit the entire collection and their completed pages from 2018 at the Nantucket Arts Festival, October 2018.

Manifest






Manifest is an ongoing project to produce photographs of objects, documents, photographs, books, and other objects of African American material culture contained within public and private collections throughout the U.S. These repositories encompass elements such as diaries, slave collars, human hair, a drum, souvenirs, and other objects, some with great significance and others simply quotidian representations of daily life from the history of the black community. Manifest was created by Fall 2017 Anne Reeves Artist-in-Residence Wendel White.



Wendel White’s Manifest photographs of objects recovered from the Paul Robeson House will be on view in the ACP’s Solley Theater Lobby and projected onto the Robeson House from dusk to 8pm from October 20 through November 30.


The Mask of Femininity: Feminist Portraits

“The focus of work is a feminist, gender equality and women’s rights project, which explores the way women are viewed and society’s expectations of them. A series of portraits of feminist icons, show strong, powerful and self-motivated women, some of whom have reached iconic status for their work and influence, and in themselves are agents of change in society. Female icons are at the very forefront of the women’s rights movement because of all the things that these women have achieved and the circumstances in which they achieved them. Women leaders in all fields, be it political, scientific, business, artistic or humanitarian are under intense and constant scrutiny.

All of the works are made with commercially available Lego bricks. Lego in all its various forms is, at the same time, limiting as well as limitless in its possibilities. The color palette is limited yet consistent, and the basic “pixel” size is also fixed. Yet at the same time, it is a hard, durable, tactile and lightweight material; it can be reused, replaced and altered at will, and provides a myriad of different possibilities due to the different available shaped bricks, tiles and plates, with the exciting opportunity to create the 3-dimensional and textural aspects of the art.”

British artist Andre Veloux resides in Princeton, NJ with his wife and daughter. He is represented by the Krause Gallery, New York City, with a solo show booked for June 2018. His feminist work is defined artistically within the parameters of modern feminism, standing up for women and their rights and empowerment. Standing against the patriarchal society and its male entitlement which causes discrimination, oppression and violence against women. His work, which is created entirely from Lego, is in private collections worldwide and has been shown in many group shows.
