Retrospective by Catherine Mick + Works by Contemporary Recycled Fibre Artists
Meet-the-Artist Reception: Saturday, July 20, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
This exhibition will showcase the upcycled textile garments of Catherine Mick, who has spent a lifetime experimenting on how to repurpose fabrics to give garments a new life. Catherine is a spinner and a weaver, so she breaks old garments with worn out sections down to their most basic components and then spins and weaves beautiful new fabrics from them.
Catherine has also invited other textile artists to share her exhibition in order to showcase the ways in which they have creatively repurposed textiles and breathed new life into old rags. 23 local artists have submitted a wide variety of upcycled textile pieces from baskets, to clothing, to wall hangings, to cushions, to art dolls and sculptures.
