Dana Robson and Moxie showcase work that explores the intersection of craft and art focusing on humanity and it's collective nature.
Artist Reception: Thurs, June 11th, 6 - 8 pm Free + open to the public. In coordination with the Capitol Hill Art Walk
Runs: June 4 - 30, 2009
Dan Robson: Dana utilizes maps as her canvas with needlepoint thread as her drawing medium. She works on small scale-tiny pieces as she feels they are intimate experiences between the work and the viewer. Her imagery is dominated by tiny things in nature that have a big impact.
Moxie: Moxie is an experimental and self-taught artist. She communicates through fiber alchemy, reveling in the transformation of soft, comforting wool fiber into art objects that are solid to the touch. Her work is needle felted and uses no water, knitting, sewing, stuffing, embroidery or glue. She sculpts using only her hands, wool fiber, industrial felting needles and time.
