InLiquid presents More Stitch Witchery featuring the work of Marie Elcin, Melissa Maddonni Haims, Rachel Udell, and the late Maggie Brosnan. “This exhibit, curated by Ms. Haims, celebrates the bonds between women and fiber arts; both traditional and non-traditional. Brosnan, an artist from California, who passed away in the mid 1990’s, worked on the outskirts of the societal norm during her art-making period (from the 1960’s until her death in 1994) dyeing her own wool and spinning her own yarns to create fantastical capes and creations, such as a singular, knitted, right hand glove.
Elcin, Haims, and Udell are all Philadelphia based fiber artists who embrace the maternal aspects of fiber arts in theme, material and technique. Embroidery, soft sculpture, and non-traditional textiles will be highlighted in this show.” – Nichols Berg Gallery
More Stitch Witchery is a second installation following Stitch Witchery presented by the Nichols Berg Gallery in Chestnut Hill from March 1 through 31, 2012.
