***Reminder: The Next Meeting for SDA-IL Will Be This Sunday February 28th, 2016 from 11AM to 1pm at LillStreet Loft in Chicago***
Hi! I just wanted to remind you all of our next meeting which will be this Sunday February 28th 2016 at the LillStreet Loft from 11AM to 1PM. SDA-IL, Craft/Work, & LillStreet Art Center invites you to the event listed below. Please feel free to bring a friend if you think they would be interested. Nora Renick Rinehart (a teacher at LillStreet Art Center and the new Textile Dept. Director at LillStreet) and fellow artist Rachel Wallis will be giving the talk described below:
"Hirst, Don’t It? Revealing the Invisible Labor of Female Fiber Artists in Twentieth Century Art."
Women fiber artists have engaged in the core concepts of Modern Art, including color theory, geometry, and abstract composition, in ways that have not always been acknowledged within contemporary art movements. However, any history of Modern Art cannot be complete if it refuses to include the work and ideas of women and fibers. Through research, writing and an accompanying quilt project, artists Nora Renick Rinehart and Rachel Wallis (otherwise known as Craft/Work) have documented the parallel history of fiber art and artists in Contemporary Art (beginning with the often overlooked artists of the Bauhaus Weaving Workshops) and reinserted their ideas and practices into one of the most talked about works of Post-Modern Art on the market today. Please join Nora & Rachel for a slide presentation of their project which will be followed by a discussion period and pot-luck style brunch.
Sunday, February 28th, 11am-1pm
4437 N Ravenswood Ave, Chicago, IL 60640

*** Also, one more note: a SDA-IL member coming to our event is looking for donations of embroidery hoops and floss. She is an art teacher and she wants to do an embroidery project with all her students. So any hoops or extra floss you have hanging around and want to get rid of (and/or are willing to donate in the name of art), please bring them to Lillstreet Lofts. She will accept them gratefully. ***
