Kerr Grabowski Lecture: “Inspirations and Work” on April 27

Wednesday, April 27 – 7:00 p.m.

CMA Recital Hall

 

Please join noted fiber artist Kerry Grabowski, known for creating texture and imagery with Deconstructed Screen Printing methods, at her lecture “Inspiration and Work.” Kerr’s Facebook self-description gives a hint of what we might expect to hear: “Mark maker, dreamer, workshop instructor, friend, mother, grandmother … creating unique, sometimes whimsical, dyed and painted clothing.”

 

The lecture is free to TAA members and students; $5 for nonmembers. Before the lecture, all are invited to join Kerr for dinner in the Museum Atrium at 5:00 p.m. This will be a good opportunity for those who have previously taken one of Kerr’s workshops to re-connect with her.

Friday, May 20 – 7:00 p.m.

TAA member Catherine Joslyn will present, “Inka Weavers: Saving Traditional Weaving In Highland Peru,” and highlights from her extensive work in Peru. Catherine has brought two exhibits of highland Peru textiles to the United States and featured master weaver and organizer Nilda Callañaupa Alvarez in weaving workshops. She will discuss Peruvian festivals, the revival of ancient weaving skills that were nearly lost, international gatherings of weavers, and how sales of hand-crafted textiles support workers and their families around the world.

Catherine will show examples of textiles from Callañaupa’s Center for Traditional Textiles of Cusco as well as her recent work that is inspired by her time in Peru. She is a member of Weave a Real Peace (WARP), a group that supports textile cottage industries all over the world. The lecture is free to TAA members and students; $5 for nonmembers
