“Print and Stitch” Exhibition Is Now on View
Print and Stitch: Collective Works
Friday, October 8, 2021–Saturday, January 29, 2022
CALS Roberts Library of Arkansas History & Art
Loft Gallery, CALS Galleries & Bookstore at Library Square
This exhibition featuring artists Mallory Darwin, Nancy Dunaway, Melissa Gill, Judy Henderson, Tanya Hollifield, and Ellen Ishee O’Lonney showcases works created in the “Printing and Stitching” class offered by Gill at the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts.
With an emphasis on complete creative freedom and experimentation, the class explored different ways of combining printmaking and textile techniques such as relief printing, monotype, silkscreen printing, embroidery, and fabric dyeing.
Coming from a variety of backgrounds and skill levels, the students created a wonderful synergy together and inspired each other’s processes and ideas of what was possible. These works challenge traditional notions of what printmaking is and can be, emphasizing image and concept rather than technique.
