I've been honored to be one of three grantees of the Jerome Fiber Artist Project Grant for the 2018/2019 year. As part of my grant, I've been exploring creativity and I've taken a break from making products, such as MinneBites and my Mary Pow line of handbags and accessories. It's allowed me to be able to find a studio art practice for myself and push myself in new directions.
Well, the year is coming to a close and I'm so proud that my resulting textile artworks will be on display for 9 weeks at Textile Center's Joan Mondale Gallery starting on May 23rd.
I do hope you'll join me for the opening day!
Mary Pow actively investigates the creative process through her methodical cut-and-sewn color block work where she explores the multitude of viewpoints contained within the world of humanity.
Janet Dixon uses memory and imagination as a basis for the autobiographical abstract maps she creates using breakdown screen-printing and low immersion dyeing.
In her Queer Encrypted Weavings, Heather MacKenzie is creating an ongoing series of queer heirlooms using contributed text coded into textile structures.
See you there!
I am an artist and designer based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. My specialties are textiles and pastels.
