Reception of Exhibition "Envelop": FV gallery x Innovations in Textile St. Louis 2019
Exhibition "Envelop" at Theatre gallery is presented in partnership with Innovations in Textiles 2019 St. Louis, a regional fiber art collaborated event presented Fall 2019.
Innovations in Textiles 2019 is a regional collaborative event presented Fall 2019 throughout St. Louis, St. Charles and Columbia, Missouri, as well as Metro East & Mt. Vernon, Illinois. Innovations in Textiles 2019 serves to enlighten the community with a unique aesthetic perspective on fiber art.
St. Louis based Artists Janie Stamm and Liz Moore will be featured in the show.
Each artist engages with familiar craft techniques and materials, and subverts these to find a deeper meaning within their fibers. Rather than using these fibers to provide warmth and comfort, their work envelops the viewers physically and psychically with concepts of the grotesque, attraction/repulsion, the artificial, violence, Queerness, and the threats our world faces in a changing climate.
