Charm & Vinegar
June 17 - July 9, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, June 17, 6-9pm
Artist Talk: Wednesday, July 6, 6-8pm
With charm and biting satire, these four artists use domestic materials to create critical and humorous work.
Charm & Vinegar features Liliana Avalos Mendoza who makes soft sculpture of household appliances and indigenous Peruvian imagery from original silk-screened fabric; Edith Isaac Rose who embroiders haunting political images; Cinnamon Willis who creates “melandollies” - dolls expressing undesirable feelings; and Ruth Marshall who hand knits textiles of endangered species.
Through the exhibition and Artist Talk, Willis, Mendoza, Rose, and Marshall will offer new perspectives on material, cultural heritage, tradition and gender politics.
