My first solo show is opening on Sept 10, 2009 at the Cultural Arts Center at Glen Allen. It’s visual art….yes.
It’s fiber art….yes, but it’s more. It’s a tactile art exhibit. When we exhibit most visual arts, we eliminate an entire segment of our population from experiencing it. The unsighted community. This exhibit is tactile…..as are most textiles, and they should be touched to be fully experienced. So this exhibit is about the tactility of textiles, and the inclusion of an entire people group to this show. The unsighted. Please, if you know of members of the unsighted community who would enjoy an exhibit designed to include them, invite them to my exhibit.
And the opening. I’ll post more on that later.
