Opening Reception: Friday, November 9 from 6pm to 8pm
SOFT SERVE examines artists’ use of fiber to explore hard experiences unique to feminine identities. Expectations of the feminine to encompass agreeability, grace, and warmth are also met with stereotypes of weakness and fragility. When facing difficulty these qualities, whether learned or rejected, inform our response, for better or for worse. Works in silk, cotton, weaving and embroidery ask: What does it mean to be soft in a hard position?
Artists: Sasha Baskin, Verónica Casado Hernández, Leslie Holt, and Alanna Reeves
Weaving and Grieving, Saturday, Dec. 1st 12:30-2:00pm
