Old Cloth and New Paper

May 13, 2022 - July 10, 2022

Reception May 27th 6pm - 8pm

From the moment we are born until we die, we are almost constantly in contact with cloth as we move through the landscape of our lives. Without thinking about it, we are familiar with its varied qualities--The simplicity of white cotton, the luxury of silk velvet, the flexibility of knitting, the structure of weaving. We can see history in a piece of fabric, how it wrinkles, stains, takes repairs, unravels. Paper is a kind of nonwoven cloth, and is in fact often made of recycled cotton or linen. It can be dyed, stitched, wrinkled, torn, and repaired much in the same way as fabric. This exhibition presents new works of handmade paper used in innovative ways, alongside more traditional textile pieces, all drawing inspiration from the varied landscapes where they were made.
