Textiles and Patternmaking

The David Barnett Gallery is proud to present “Textiles and Patternmaking,” an exhibit exploring how the principles of weaving and patternmaking most commonly associated with textiles are utilized across mediums. Featuring woven, quilted, embroidered, tufted, and knotted fiber works from across the world and throughout time, alongside mimetic artworks in a diversity of mediums, the often-underestimated power of patternmaking is on full display. The exhibition of these pieces together calls into question the way textiles, as use objects, have often been excluded from the world of fine art.

This Studio is Emerging!

As we accelerate into Spring, Studio Ecology wakes from a winter of dreaming to the sound of music. Step into a space where the four winds meet, and visitors are immersed in layers of woodwinds and drums. In this vibrant environment all are invited to participate in the most hopeful of acts: making marks with floral brushes and helping to plant a studio pigment garden. Throughout the evening seeds will be set in motion by burying them in cool soil, while siren singers conjure the growth of all involved. Join Saint Kate Artist in Residence Jeff Zimpel and his creative collaborators, enjoy light refreshments and live entertainment, and take part in the tending of his Studio Ecology.
