Between the Threads
2016 + 2017 / Rowan University Art Gallery / Glassboro, NJ
Six women artists reevaluate ideas of sexuality and gender at Rowan University Art Gallery at High Street. Utilizing yarn, string, hair, and thread in practices often considered the domain of womanhood (knitting, sewing, and weaving), they employ these materials and techniques in non-traditional ways to explore issues of identity, sexuality, power, control, and self-determination.
For this exhibition, the curator, Mary Salvante, chose a selection of work including quilts, hyperbolic crocheted wall hangings, and small sculpture. The highlight of this exhibition was a yarnbomb that covered the facade of the Rowan Art Gallery building.
Additionally, I was invited to work on a public engagement project, Yarn It! , with Creative Glassboro, a community group dedicated to making Glassboro a welcoming, vibrant, and joyful arts and culture destination for the South Jersey region.
