Exhibitions

Shield/Shadows: Sculptures and Drawings by Rebecca Cross

September 8-October 13
Opening Reception: Friday, September 8, 5-8 p.m.
Featuring silk sculpture "shields" communicating ideas that are personal, conceptual and decidedly political, as Cross feels besieged by the political decisions being made in our nation that threaten the social fabric of our nation’s democracy and place our natural environment in jeopardy.

The "shields" are formed through shibori, a process using resists in color and form by tying objects into fabric, immersing them in dye, drying them, then removing the objects. The exhibit also includes drawings derived from the sculptures’ shadows. One piece will engage viewers by allowing them to trace their own shadow and write about aspects of their life that need protection in this climate.

Half of all proceeds will go to Doctors Without Borders, Planned Parenthood and The National Wildlife Federation. www.rebeccastextiles.com
