Wed, 01/21/2009

This is an interview with the two artists and the curators of this exhibition, Stefano Catalani and Namita Gupta Wiggers. For more information, see the museum's website.

Through countless small gestures of her craft, Mandy Greer employs humble handicraft processes and materials, executing her work through crochet, braiding, sewing and beading processes that use yarn, beads, shells, feathers and more.

Using figures clipped from the print media, Darrel Morris' large pieces are line drawings with thread, sharply graphic and monochromatic. Measuring six feet or more, the nearly life-sized imagery envelops and draws the viewer into the work to become an active participant.
