Textile Show Opens this Friday at Silvermine Arts Center (New Canaan, CT)
September 20 through November 2, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, September 19, 6-8pm
Embrace, Digital embroidery, rug hooking, and encaustic on linen, 20" x 20"
The exhibition "Undomesticated" by Leslie Giuliani highlights her hybrid textile artwork at the Vassos Gallery at Silvermine Arts Center from Friday, September 19 through November 2, 2014. There will be an opening reception on Friday, September 19 from 6 pm - 8 pm.
Giuliani says, "This exhibition will include works featuring a range of textile technique combinations including digital embroidery, hand embroidery, digital textile printing, cyanotype photography, sewing and rug hooking embellished with encaustic painting.
Juxtaposing images naturally creates free narrative associations. The images and compositions and the stories they imply are interesting, colorful and fun on their own but beyond that, the unusual combination of materials will compel further exploration.
The embroidered and printed images will all be translations of my original drawings and paper cutouts into textile form. Rug hooking will be used, not in a traditional functional way, rather, as a means to color areas and draw lines."
Giuliani will be in the gallery every Wednesday during the run of the show, working and giving demos including rug hooking and digital embroidery. For more information, please see Silvermine's website.
