Textiles: A History of Expression and Last Words by Susan Lenz

Textiles: A History of Expression illuminates textiles through contemporary concepts while reflecting traditional approaches to the medium. The exhibition highlights central themes of memory, fluidity of emotion, multi-sensory experience and reverence. Using natural dyeing, meticulous handwork, embroidery, and quilting techniques, the artists invite viewers into thoughtful engagement with their experience. The artists, Alice Schlein (Greenville, SC), Sasha de Koninck (Santa Monica, CA), Beth Andrews (Greer, SC), Kristy Bishop (Charleston, SC), and Meredith Piper (Greenville, SC) re-energize the rich history of textile by continually informing their contemporary practices.

In Last Words, Susan Lenz's work focuses on "the accumulated memory inherent in discarded things" (susanlenz.com).  She employs the use of recycled materials, hand work and embroidery to create imagery detailing her concepts. Lenz is a full-time artist out of Columbia, SC. She will showcase her artwork in Gallery B
