Coming up: a textile art show to blow the roof off your cross stitch circle. Selvage premiers at TSU’s Hiram van Gordon Memorial Gallery Thursday from 6-8 for a hearty opening. The curators are top notch: Laura Hutson, former New Yorker and the Scene’s arts editor joins forces with painter Jodi Hays. This show will offer an in-depth look at the versatility of textiles and elevate the homespun to top tier works worthy of investigation.
The show will feature roughly 30 works by 10 artists including Courtney Adair Johnson, Jovencio de la Pax, Brandon Donahue, Jodi Hays, Aimee Miller, Louis Schmidt, Shannon Lucy, Maggie Haas, Alex Blau, and Gabriel Pionkowski. Courtney Adair Johnson seems to be everywhere lately, and I’m psyched to see her installation.
The show will run through November 21, but some of the artists are sure to be at the opening Thursday, so I’d bet on heading over then and returning for repeated viewings.
The gallery is located at Elliot Hall Women’s Building on TSU’s campus. Here’s a campus map so that you find your way.
