The focus of Michelle Lougee’s and Susan Heideman’s art is the dazzling interplay of organisms swirling around and within us. Inside/outside; plant/animal/mineral; micro/macro; we explore and confound the connections, contradictions, and borders among organic forms. From the high-speed acrobatic maneuvers of cell proteins to the swelling of larval cocoons, we aim to reveal the drama of these quotidian yet imagination-defying entities.Learn more >
This workshop explores embroidery as drawing and mark making with a specific focus on how to translate drawing into a stitched work. Through direct drawing, transfer and projection students will build technical skills and conceptual idea development. Traditional drawing techniques such as contour, gesture and hatching are addressed and considered in terms of application with embroidery. Students will learn embroidery techniques, including various stitches, appliqué techniques, and staining of textiles. Participants will begin a personal project and discuss the best way to make stitch, technique, color and materials choices. Open to all skill levels.Learn more >
