May 6 – June 26, 2017
Opening Reception: Saturday, May 6, 4-6pm
Weaving Longitudes will survey the work of Leanne Grimes and Lisa Haskell, two artists who intersect and overlap in their explorations of time, space, and memory. The culmination of this show focuses on how the two weave their stories as mothers, daughters, and art educators onto the walls of the 20*20 House with work they have made throughout their careers. The show will be a look back, forward, and through, with new connections made as a result.
The show represents a reflection as a whole rooted in concrete ideas with a desire to present shared experiences. The aesthetic of these women may differ stylistically, but each artist is focused on translating the notions of existence and consciousness, figuratively and abstractly weaving memories through a conjured time and place to arrive at destinations layered with reminiscence. A journey of the past, meeting the present, and pondering the possibilities of exploration.
