'Intimacy + Materiality' 

When: Jan. 22-April 10 2016
Phone: 802-253-8358
This new exhibition at Helen Day Art Center in Stowe takes on the intricacies of hand production, with a strong focus on fiber arts. With work from 13 artists including Sarah Amos, Emily Barletta, Liz Collins, Wylie Sofia Garcia, J. Morgan Puett, Kathleen Schneider and Fraser Taylor, viewers are invited to consider the relationships among quotidian materials, craft and design, and contemporary art. Celebrating and reinventing techniques such as knitting, crochet, weaving, screen-printing, embroidery and felting, the show displays a solid appreciation for both the domestic and industrial labor of textiles. It also ties in perfectly with the center’s concurrent hosting of California artist/activist Carole Frances Lung, aka Frau Fiber.
