Fabricave

September 16 - November 5

Free
Untitled by Tranesha Smith-Kilgore, 2022, mixed media sculpture, 41 x 22 x 18 inches - A hanging multimedia sculpture made of ribbon, yarn, and bits of fabric tied together with found objects and beads.

Venture into the Fabricave with the Creativity Explored community.

Imagine a faraway place where the air is warm and fuzzy, stalactites of soft and luscious textures hang above, and the walls come alive with billowing tapestries covered in vibrant patterns. Textured landscapes and curious characters made of yarn, thread, felt, fabrics, and notions depict a colorful and imaginative world made entirely of fiber.

In the studios and from home, CE artists interested in needle crafts have expanded their horizons by experimenting with technique, scale, and materials to consider their practice from the perspective of sculpture.

Join the Creativity Explored community for a textural journey into Fabricave, opening to the public at the CE gallery on Friday, September 16, on view through Saturday, November 5, 2022.

Curated by CE teaching artists Alexander Hernandez and Victor Molina
