Wall Eye Gallery: Undomesticated 3.19 6-11PM

March 19- April 11, 2010
Curated by Stephanie Lipscomb and Linda Ayala

Artists Reception
Friday, March 19, 6-11PM

In celebration of Women’s History Month and National Craft Month, Undomesticated shares the work of 10 artists who knit, sew, weave, embroider, bead, and crochet. These crafts were long considered to be traditional, domestic, and “women’s work” that many women were expected to learn. For generations these beautiful techniques were passed down with the main intent of taking care of family and filling a home. We knitted and sewed items to clothe our families. We wove, embroidered, and crocheted to fill our homes with intricacy and love. In Undomesticated, we honor this heritage through modern reinterpretations of this necessity-driven set of skills as a means of artistic expression. Featuring the art of Linda Ayala, Rebecca Cross, Emily Felderman, Christy Gray, Stephanie Lipscomb, Christine Mauersberger, Shannon Okey, Sara Rabinowitz, Georgianne Wanous, and Jennifer Whitten.
