Unwinding / Unwound Exhibition Spotlight

October 20, 2023 5:00 am

“The impetus driving the work in this exhibition does not arise from the need to abolish cohesive traditions. Instead, each work possesses an energetic momentum to protract all-too-familiar art forms by translating, rearticulating, unwinding and rewinding the components of material practices. Yet subtle disloyalties to traditional assumptions regarding craft, tradition, language, meaning, and interpretation murmur. …

In Review: Ran Hwang at The Baker Museum by Janice T. Paine

March 17, 2023 5:00 am

Repetition is the spice of life for Korean-American artist Ran Hwang. She practices an art of obsessive accumulation, deploying buttons, beads and crystals with a fierce exactitude. Impaled on pins, these tiny sewing notions coalesce into culturally laden imagery of plum blossoms, Buddhas and architectural edifices. Some of the slow, painstaking work of pounding her …

Fiber, Fiber Everywhere: Thread Paper Cloth by Mirka Knaster 

September 30, 2022 5:00 am

What does it mean to call oneself a fiber artist? When I transitioned to that title, after years of being a textile artist, I didn’t know how relatively recent the term “fiber art” was coined—the 1950s. It’s not that fiber art didn’t exist before then, but pieces that were made through weaving, knitting, crocheting, quilting, …

Inaugural SDA Southwest Regional Exhibition

September 16, 2022 5:00 am

The Southwest region of the United States stretches across an expansive landscape that ranges from a variety of soaring monoliths of red sandstone pinnacles to lush snow capped mountains. The high desert plateau repetitively cracks open to reveal cavernous canyons and hidden spring-fed creeks. The overwhelmingly gorgeous scenery combines with the powerful presence of indigenous …

“Tucked-In: Resilience in Small Moments” by Elizabeth Fram

August 26, 2022 5:00 am

It’s no surprise that responses to Covid-19 have been as numerous and diverse as we are individual. Interestingly, many artists I’ve spoken to have found a silver lining in the hours and days of uninterrupted solitude the pandemic gave them to work. I count myself among that fortunate contingent. More than 15 months ago, SDA …

On Display: “BIG BODY PLAY” by April Dauscha

August 13, 2021 5:00 am

Originally I planned to curate this exhibition, BIG BODY PLAY  for the summer of 2020, but we all know how that story ends. Instead, the show came together this summer, just in time for a much needed summer respite. What better timing could we need – it’s the summer of freedom and fun – traveling, …
