Stimulus: Creation in Threads

Stimulus: Creation in Threads
Thursday, June 20, 2019
6:30–8:00 p.m.

What is the process of creating with fabric and thread? How does the artist’s hand and the sewing or embroidery machine work together harmoniously?

Stimulus: Creation in Threads brings together artists creating in textiles to answer these questions and more. Conversation participants include McColl Center alumna artist Beverly Y. Smith (2001), mixed-media artist Kenny Nguyen, and conceptual artist Stephen Wilson. Visiting curator Marisa J Pascucci will guide the conversation.

Stimulus: Creation in Threads is presented in partnership with SOZO Gallery and New Gallery of Modern Art.

The Stimulus series offers you deeper insight into the work and ideas of contemporary artists. These sessions aim to make connections between current McColl Center artists-in-residence, McColl Center alumni artists, and our constantly evolving local arts community.
