Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg SC

This diverse group of female artists take aim to express the events, forms, and concepts within their experiences of creating spaces for themselves and their families. From architecture and aprons, to raccoons riding robo-vacuums, these works explore ancient traditions and the evolution of female-centric expectations within the domestic sphere.

southXeast: Contemporary Southeastern Art 2018

The 2018 edition of southXeast: contemporary southeastern art is the fifth edition of the only regularly occurring curated exhibition in Florida that presents a selection of innovative art made by artists living in the southeast. Devoid of thematic ballast, the exhibition has the simple aim that our students and other audiences might benefit by seeing high quality artwork not commonly or ever seen in South Florida and/or Miami, a growing international center of contemporary art activity. The exhibition also seeks to present a diversity of approaches to contemporary art making while also representing specific studio art disciplines that are taught in FAU’s Department of Visual Arts and Art History.

ONE Arts
Burlington V.T.

    KnotWork is a series of sculptures and wall pieces that employ the use of weaving yarn, embroidery, and knotting through handmade paper, wood, and mixed media. The artist shows us her manipulations of thread, bound images, varied patterns, and processes that reflect the meditation involved in repetitive action. 
    In addition to the two and three-dimensional work shown at OneARTS, there will be a performance by Lifetime Guarantee, a collaboration between Jenny Hillenbrand and Kristen Tordella-Williams. Lifetime Guarantee focuses on the relationship between the body and household tools and products. The performance will be at 6:30PM during the opening.
