The Next Meeting for SDA-IL Will Be Sunday February 28th, 2016 from 11AM to 1pm at LillStreet Loft in Chicago
I just wanted to let you all know about our next meeting which will be Sunday February 28th 2016 at the LillStreet Loft from 11AM to 1PM. I am really excited about this because I have arranged a speaking event instead of our usual meeting! Craft/Work, LillStreet Art Center & SDA-IL invites you to the event listed below. Feel free to bring a friend if you think they would be interested. Nora Renick Rinehart (a teacher at LillStreet Art Center) 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
