10/26: Warp & Weft

Thursday, October 26, 2023 | 5:00 PM


On View: August 28 – November 19, 2023

Reception: Thursday, October 26 | 5 to 7 pm

Location: Ricahrd B. Talkin Family Art Gallery | Howard County Community College 

Presented by Richard B. Talkin Family Art Gallery, and curated by Maryland Art Place (MAP), “Warp & Weft” highlights female artists working in fiber. 

Women and their relationship to fiber have long been intertwined throughout history. Athena, goddess of war strategy, wisdom, justice and crafts was especially known for weaving. It is told that she made the first human woman’s dress for Pandora, teaching Pandora how to weave herself. This legacy was mirrored in the matriarchal tendencies of women, passing down their generational knowledge and know-how to their daughters. This was often seen with quilting, as example, which largely began out of necessity, eventually turning to more of an art form as techniques and needlework advanced.
