Please join us on Tuesday, April 2, from 6:00 to 8:00 PM, for a demonstration by the artists of the #stitchers exhibition! Drop in and learn more about creating abstract embroidery with artists Jennifer Lamontagne, Emily Wright, and Trisha Danforth. Each artist will be working on an embroidery, showcasing and discussing how they create their artwork.
Gallery 263 is excited to present our latest Exhibition Proposal Series show, #stitchers. This exhibition features six women artists from around the world who met on the social media platform Instagram. In their practices, the artists investigate what it means to elevate the traditional medium of hand embroidery in the context of the fine arts community, and how their art can be accessible and inspire others on social media. Through the exploration of incorporating multimedia elements into their embroidery and the act of depicting deeply personal narratives — such as gender assumptions, family stories, and more — these artists are challenging the notion of embroidery as a pastime craft.
