Making it in Crafts III

102 S 10TH ST LAFAYETTE, IN 47905


This biennial exhibition, guest curated by Jim Sondgeroth, will feature the over 60 prominent and award winning professional craft artists who work in clay, glass, metal, wood and fiber.  These American and International artists have each been invited to participate and all of the works will be for sale.

I'm excited to be participating in this show with 3 big shibori silks.

September 11-October 16, 2015
Reception Friday, September 18, 2015, 6 to 8 pm

This exhibit is part of Innovations in Textiles 10 / 2015 

Material Revival renews and celebrates a collaboration, begun 4 years ago for Innovations 9, between friends and colleagues who share a student/teacher/mentor relationship and who strive for a collective conversation that will take them out of their comfort zones to expand how they work conceptually, materially and how they think about their work. Erin Cork Woolfolk, Jo Stealey, Laura Strand, Erin Vigneau Dimick, and curator Pat Vivod are joined this year by new member Sarah Gillespie in the challenge to create inspired new bodies of work by integrating the shared materials from each other’s studios into their own work.

Innovations in Textiles is many events scattered over more than 15 gallery exhibits bringing artists from outside the area, artist talks, and workshops.

This exhibit featured work by Irit Dulman of Israel,  Fabienne Rey of the Netherlands, and Rio Wrenn, Elizabeth Adams-Marks and Patricia Vivod of the USA.  Curators are Adams-Marks and Vivod.  You can find a wealth of information on the show and all of the artists at a new blog:  From the Inside Out.  

Rio Wrenn traveled from Portland, Oregon for the opening reception and offered a 2 day workshop,  Printing and Dyeing with Rust and Tannins, on August 23 and 24, 2014 at the Textile Lab at SIUE Department of Art and Design.  We were able to accommodate 15 students and had a fabulous time.  

Fabienne Rey was to have come too, but due to family illness was not able to join us to teach a 2nd workshop on eco printing.  We sincerely hope she can come another time. 

Here is the official show card for the exhibition featuring images of each of the artist's works that appeared in the show. 

A complete catalog of the exhibition is being made and will be finished very soon.
